Spotlight on New Technology Award developed by a Small Business Award
In support and recognition of innovative technologies being developed by small businesses (less than 300 employees), OTC created a category for the Spotlight on New Technology Award reserved for innovative technologies developed by small businesses. Up to two companies may receive this prestigious award.
These winners will receive the same benefits listed above, but with the added recognition as a “Small Business Award” winner.
New technologies developed by small businesses will also be considered for the primary Spotlight on New Technology award. This new award category is simply an additional opportunity for small businesses to have their innovative technologies considered.
Small Business Award Requirements:
In order to be considered for the Small Business Award, your company must:
- Be independently owned and operated or a not-for-profit concern.
- Have no more than 300 employees for the preceding twelve months (as of the application deadline).
- Meet all other Spotlight on New Technology Award requirements.
Please check the box “Yes” on Question 14 of this application if you would like to be considered for this new award.
Companies do not need to apply separately for the Small Business Award. Checking “Yes” on Question 14, confirming eligibility, makes a small business eligible to receive a Spotlight on New Technology Award in either category, using a single application.
