cleverbridge, a provider of global commerce, billing and payment solutions, announces that the Illinois Technology Association (ITA) has named cleverbridge a finalist for the 2017 ITA CityLIGHTS Lighthouse Award. Now in its 18th year, the ITA CityLIGHTS Awards is the premier annual event elevating and honoring achievements from the local tech community. Winners for each of the eight award categories will be announced at a gala event on September 14 at Morgan Manufacturing in Chicago.
The Lighthouse Award recognizes a growth-stage company (i.e., more than $25 million in revenue) that, through innovation in products, services or business approach, has grown to become a serious competitor in the marketplace. All award finalists are selected by a panel of accomplished judges representing a Who’s Who in Illinois technology. The public can contribute to the selection of this year’s winners by voting from August 7-18 at http://www.itacitylights.com/voting. Winners will be determined by a composite score of the judges’ scores and voting by the public in all categories except the Industry Champion, which is determined solely by the ITA Board of Directors.
