Open call for Innovator of the Year award nominations open until January 31

TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2015 /CNW/ - PwC Canada is pleased to announce that nominations are open for the 2016 PwC Vision to Reality (V2R) Awards. These annual awards recognize and celebrate companies who have led the charge in disrupting and reshaping their industry and propel it forward through innovation.

"The Vision to Reality Awards provide PwC Canada with an opportunity to celebrate other like-minded organizations who share our commitment to pushing the boundaries of convention and blaze new trails for business in Canada," said Philip Grosch, Partner, Consulting & Deals, PwC Canada. "Innovation is thriving across the country and PwC wants to be part of fostering that innovation by collaborating with companies of all sizes across multiple sectors through sharing ideas, technologies, insights and strategies that help take their vision and make it a reality."

This year's Innovator of the Year award is open to companies of all sizes and industries who have demonstrated how an innovative idea has created a competitive advantage and reshaped their industry in a new or unexpected way. Whether it be product, service, process, partnership or campaign, the idea must demonstrate creative thinking that steps away from convention and has a proven industry impact.

Companies can be nominated or self-nominate in one of three Innovator of the Year categories:

The disruptor: Emerging company - Under $25M in revenue (including pre-revenue), Canadian-controlled or headquartered in Canada and able to demonstrate significant revenue growth, customer/user growth, high engagement metrics or funding as well as prove innovation.

The builder: Mid-market business – Between $25 - $500M in revenue, Canadian-controlled or headquartered in Canada and able to demonstrate significant revenue growth, customer/user growth or high engagement metrics as well as prove innovation.

The visionary: Large enterprise – More than $500M in revenue, Canadian-controlled or headquartered in Canada and able to demonstrate significant revenue growth, customer/user growth or high engagement metrics as well as prove innovation.

In addition to being recognized for leadership and innovation, the Vision to Reality Award provides recipients with an opportunity for brand recognition and exposure as well as networking opportunities and access to entrepreneurs, CEOs and other industry leaders. In addition, winners will be invited to participate in the Vision to Reality conference in April 2016 in Toronto.
