FasPark is Named Top 75 for 11th Annual Chicago Innovation Awards

FasPark of Chicago is named Top 75 for the prestigious 2012 Chicago Innovation Awards. The final ten winners will be announced Monday, October 22 and celebrated at an event with over 1,500 business and civic leaders at Chicago’s Harris Theater.

Sept. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- The Chicago Innovation Awards, celebrating its 11th year, is the only organization in the country dedicated to honoring the most innovative new products or services brought to market or to public service from a specific region.  This year almost 400 nominations were received.

FasPark – http://faspark.com, is the leader in street-parking information. Co-founded by University of Illinois Professor Eyal Amir and DePaul alum Sergei Kozyrenko, FasPark’s technology speeds up drivers looking for street parking. It uses data from many sources to determine the best route to find parking right now. FasPark gives complete coverage of Chicago, including all free spots, all zoned (permit) spots, and also all pay (metered) spots.

“The most important message of the Chicago Innovation Awards is one of confidence and courage,” said Thomas D. Kuczmarski, co-founder with Chicago journalist Dan Miller of the awards.  “The economy is challenging but each nominee believes the simple truth that a powerful new product or service will find a rewarding market and has the courage to pursue their vision.”

As one of the Top 75 finalists, FasPark will receive a scholarship to attend a day-long executive education program on September 18th titled “The Practical Innovator”, taught at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.  It is a full-day executive education course teaching the practical skills of innovation.

This year 13 judges, representing a range of Chicago’s business community, will be involved in an exhaustive and complex judging process to select the final ten winners of the Chicago Innovation Awards as well as ten “Up & Comer” award winners for smaller organizations still in the start-up phases of their innovations. In addition, each of the 75 finalists is automatically in the running for the annual “People’s Choice Award,” selected through online balloting at www.chicagoinnovationawards.com.
