InnoVision Awards, established in 1999, is South Carolina’s premier organization dedicated to the advancement of innovation and technology. InnoVision is the only program of its kind – a grass-roots, volunteer-led non-profit organization made up of businesses, organizations, universities, and individuals dedicated to finding innovation and technology in products, services, and education from across the state, and recognizing and honoring peers for achievements in their respective fields. InnoVision Awards are the mark of distinction for outstanding leadership, innovation, and technological excellence.

The InnoVision Board maintains commitment to support, honor, and celebrate technology and innovation through two primary activities – conferring the annual InnoVision Awards in late Fall, and providing educational InnoVision Forums throughout the year.


The InnoVision Awards Board of Directors is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2023 InnoVision Awards. This year’s finalists include both large and small organizations, representing an array of industries, from the upstate to the coast – a true reflection of South Carolina’s robust innovation economy.
