Chico, California (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
Electro Scan Inc., a global innovator of leak detection instrumentation, Smartphone, and Cloud-based applications, has been selected to compete among 50 finalist companies from throughout California vying for a GLOBIE award as the 2013 Most Innovative New Product in non-metro California.
Presented by Innovate North State, the Innovation Challenge is scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on June 27 at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’s prestigious “Big Room” auditorium in Chico CA.
A GLOBE Award will be presented in each of five industry categories, including Food and Ag, Web and Information Technology, Cleantech, Manufacturing, and Healthcare.
The Sierra Nevada Innovation Challenge is the only statewide Most Innovative Product Competition focused principally on California businesses located outside of San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles and San Diego. Each finalist is charged with demonstrating in a 6-minute presentation format how their new product will change the world, an industry, people’s lives or the environment in a positive, meaningful way.
In March 2013, Electro Scan Inc. was awarded the prestigious Joseph L. Abbott, Jr. Award for Product Innovation by the National Association of Trenchless Technologies (NASTT) at the organization’s No-Dig event.
Over 70 industry experts from throughout California will be on-site serving as judges including CEOs, media representatives, angel investors, venture capitalists, university and government officials and corporate executives.
According to Innovate North State Managing Director Jon Gregory, who serves as the Executive Producer of the event, “the Sierra Nevada Innovation Challenge represents a once-a-year hotbed of the best innovation occurring in emerging markets of California.” He continued, “We were impressed with Electro Scan’s game-changing innovation and are honored to have the company compete as one of the finalists.”
“We are delighted to have our Company recognized for its ground-breaking solutions,” stated Chuck Hansen, Electro Scan’s Chairman and CEO. “Electro Scan’s ability to evaluate existing, newly repaired, and relined sewer for defects, leap-frogs legacy visual inspection techniques that has been around for almost fifty years.”
