Last year, we introduced the inaugural Delaware Innovation Awards at Delaware Innovation Week. Well, we just had them again this year, so that makes it an annual thing now (you’re stuck with us now, Delaware. Sorry not sorry.)

We shared the list of nominees that you, our readers, so graciously voted on. It was a star-studded guestlist at the Delaware Innovation Awards with all of our nominees in the house at Friday’s celebration hosted by 1313 Innovation.

Here are the ones that took awards home:

The accomplishments of our nominees and winners have made 2016 quite the year for the Delaware tech scene, from strengthening the tight-knit community to exploring the spirit of collaboration, there is still so much more yet to come.
