This year, Chicago Inno is hosting their second annual, Coolest Companies Competition. This is essentially a fun challenge between different local companies to highlight the best company cultures in the Chicagoland area. An assortment of companies submitted information about what makes their company cool; Chicago Inno then selected the best companies to be nominees for the award. Grid Connect is honored to be nominated as one of the coolest companies in the area for the second year in a row.

So what makes Grid Connect so cool? The company culture includes many employee benefits, such as a weekly free lunch, an unlimited vacation policy, exciting ping-pong and bags tournaments, and more! In the nomination list, Grid Connect was quoted for another unique benefit, “We have ‘Shot Fridays,’ which includes a new shot or alcoholic drink every Friday at 2.30PM.” Grid Connect is dedicated to providing employees with the best work experience possible. Making it fun to come to work is great for keeping employees motivated and happy with their jobs.

The finalists will be selected by a panel of judges and last year’s winners at Chicago Fest, a celebration of the city’s innovators. New to this year’s award, there will be “Reader’s Choice” winners, which are publically selected winners. This means that anyone can vote for Grid Connect! Help recognize and spotlight the amazing company culture that Grid Connect has created. In order to vote, check out the link below!

When a city's innovation economy is on fire, it's the result of thousands of people and companies, across a variety of categories, heating up their respective industries and departments.

Yes, a pillar company is important to the overall health of an ecosystem, but a single success story isn't sustainable. That's why Chicago's emergence as a leading tech hub is due to all of the innovators, investors, entrepreneurs, employees, professors, civic professionals and more that are driving the city forward.

Below is the list of the 150 nominees for Chicago Inno's 50 on Fire, our December awards event. Featuring CEOs and Heads of Customer Support, early-stage startups and established enterprises, incubators and non-profits, this list is a celebration of the top innovators and influencers in tech, education, marketing, food, healthcare, and more. (The final "50 on Fire" will be revealed at the December, 2nd event via an action-packed 10-minute video).
