Innovator of the Year Awards

Home > Control Panel > Innovator of the Year Awards
The Innovator of the Year is an award initiated by the AIBA - The Alliance of International Business Associations. The award is open to companies, organizations, enterprises and businesses.

The Innovator of the Year
The Innovator of the Year Award is granted by AIBA – The Alliance of International Business Associations to companies who demonstrate the highest levels of innovation spirit. Up to three companies could be given the title each year. Innovator is defined as a person who introduces something new by making changes in established things; the innovator is a person who demonstrates something new for the first time, such as a new method, new thing or system through diligence in research and intelligence in creativity. For AIBA, the innovation is a product of group thinking; it comes through combination of knowhow and ideas of many individuals; i.e. innovation is a result of team work. AIBA suggests that greatest innovators are therefore more likely to be companies, enterprises or institutions rather than individuals; who not only comes with the idea but also executes in an efficient manner.
