Wednesday, November 12, 2014

The Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce presented the 2014 Spirit of Innovation Award to Bellhops, an online platform for moving help, at the Chamber’s 14th annual Spirit of Innovation Awards Luncheon.

Our Spirit of Innovation Award recognizes the creativity of our entrepreneurs and lets innovators know they can count on us to support them and take the time to appreciate and applaud their success,” said Bill Kilbride, president and CEO of the Chattanooga Chamber.

More than 700 area business leaders attended the event honoring six local companies for innovative products, services and processes in the Chattanooga region. PriceWaiter and Variable, Inc. also earned finalist status.

"What Chattanooga needs from its startup community is a big win in the consumer tech space,” said Cameron Doody, Bellhops cofounder. “All three nominees this year are taking on billion dollar markets with greatteams, and that is what matters for our city. Our team feels the responsibility to bring in a big win, and we won't stop until that happens."

Along with the Spirit of Innovation Award presentation, the Chattanooga Technology Council named 3DOps the winner of the Early Innovator Award, which honors emerging technology-based companies that produced groundbreaking prototype products or beta stage software applications that represent the potential for a significant competitive advantage. The Chattanooga Technology Council also honored Rapid RMS and Beyond Right Now Technologies as finalists for the 2014 award.

Keynote speaker Jeff Silver, CEO of Coyote Logistics, shared the story of his company, one of the fastest-growing third party logistics companies in North America.
