"These awards are a great opportunity to raise the profile of your own company, or to celebrate an unsung innovator that you know personally. We love to hear unusual and surprising stories."

Innovation case studies

We established the Real Innovation Awards in 2016 to recognise and celebrate the reality of the innovation process: it’s messy, time-consuming and tough. The winners are extraordinary people who persisted when the going got tough, learnt from their mistakes and had the courage to rethink their businesses in the face of disruption. Have you got what it takes to be a successful innovator?
