2014 Edison Awards Announced For The World's Most Innovative Products And Services

May 5, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- The Edison Awards, which celebrate game-changing new products and services from around the world in the spirit of Thomas Edison, announced its 2014 winners Wednesday night in San Francisco at a ceremony attended by 350 international business leaders and innovators.

The winners, which are already successful in the marketplace, were judged by a panel of more than 3,000 peers, including business executives, past winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medicine.

From consumer packaged goods to 21st century advances in medicine, award-winning innovations in this year's competition will now align themselves with the Edison brand as an acknowledgment that a jury of prestigious judges deemed their inventive solutions worthy of the distinction.

"The awards demonstrate the incredible range and pace of innovation globally and across a wide variety of industries," said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards. He added: "It is important that such excellence in innovation be widely recognized and done so in the spirit of the world's greatest inventor."

One of the evening's many highlights was the presentation of the prestigious Edison Achievement Award to two innovation giants. Elon Musk, CEO and Chief Architect of Tesla Motors and CEO/CTO SpaceX, and Yang Yuanqing, CEO of Lenovo were each honored with the Award.
