Burr Ridge, IL | GSI Technologies, LLC, was recently honored by the MIT Enterprise Forum of Chicago with a First Place "Below the Radar" Award for the success of its "Lab to Fab" business model. The award recognized GSI for leveraging "its strength in functional printing to carve out new applications in the field of printed electronics, serving customers in the medical, smart card, and solar industries."
The MIT Enterprise Forum of Chicago Below the Radar Innovation Recognition Program recognizes and promotes outstanding examples of innovation in the Chicago area that are largely unnoticed by the general business community. The forum looked at innovation in five categories: Business Model Innovation, Design Innovation, Technology Innovation, Innovation Management and Product/Service Innovation.
By shining the spotlight on these innovations, the Below the Radar Innovation Recognition Program promotes the accelerated development of a vibrant innovation ecosystem for the Chicagoland area, reaping benefits for innovative enterprises, MITEF Chicago sponsors, MITEF Chicago members, and the general Chicago business community. Its goal is to encourage, nurture, and promote local innovative talent and champion the Chicago area as a "hotbed" for innovative companies across a wide range of industries."
