Wisconsin Inno, a sister publication of the Milwaukee Business Journal, held its inaugural 50 on Fire Awards at Milwaukee’s South Second on Wednesday.
The 50 on Fire celebration identifies the state’s hottest companies, organizations and people across a variety of tech and startup industries. Wisconsin Inno announced the 50 on Fire winners a few weeks ago, and on Wednesday, honored the winners and revealed the five Inno Blazers, each of which received an actual red blazer.
So, what’s an Inno Blazer? The Inno Blazers, selected by a panel of local judges, are the top companies or people trailblazing new paths and blazing the brightest among their peers.
