Although East Bay EDA had to postpone its annual East Bay Innovation Awards event until later this year, we were excited to announce and celebrate the accomplishments of our 2020 Finalists in the May 15, 2020 insert of the San Francisco Business Times.

The 2020 finalists represent an inspiring, resilient and (yes) innovative group of businesses and organizations that make the East Bay an incredibly unique and vibrant region to live, work, and do business. Several of them, like Idea Builder Labs, the Oakland Genomics Center, and UrbanBloc have already pivoted to offering or producing new products and services in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many others continue to find ways to adapt and respond to the unprecedented challenges that we are presented with during this moment.

Look for additional details about our plans to announce the 2020 East Bay Innovation Award winners in Fall 2020. Read more about the 2020 Finalists.
