Despite the fierce competition, everyone seemed to be having a blast. InTheCapital threw a party at the Howard Theater last Thursday night for its second annual 50 on Fire awards.
Sound the hyperbole siren:

An electric crowd of visionary and trailblazing companies and individuals descended on the The Howard Theatre for the second annual 50 on Fire awards and the celebration was hotter than ever. If you’re just catching up now, you missed out on one amazing event but you can run through all of the fun photos below.
Leading up to the event, InTheCapital has covered the year’s disruptive innovators across 9 industries. We opened up nominations to our readers and received over 1,500 submissions. In October these nominations were narrowed down to 150 white hot finalists. Check them out here.
