Mycocycle, Inc., was one of the winners of the 20th annual Chicago Innovation Awards. 

The winners were announced at this year’s event held on Dec. 7. 

“Mycocycle is working hard to eliminate a significant strain on our ecosystem through proprietary technology that diverts materials from landfills, allowing for reuse into other applications,” Mycocycle CEO Joanne Rodiguez said. “We are honored to be recognized for these efforts by the Chicago Innovation Awards.”

“As we’re still in the midst of a global pandemic, innovation is needed now more than ever,” said Tom Kuczmarski, who co-founded the awards with Chicago journalist Dan Miller. “The 2021 winners are solving unmet needs impacting healthcare, social services, education, finance, food consumption, telecommunications, manufacturing, business services, consumer products and more.”

The Chicago Innovation Awards, celebrating its 20th anniversary, is the Chicago region’s foremost recognition of the most innovative new products or services brought to market each year.  

“Four hundred twenty-five organizations were nominated for this year’s awards,” said Luke Tanen, president and CEO of Chicago Innovation. “As a group, these nominees are responsible for generating over $19 billion in new revenues, 22,807 new jobs, and 340 patents from their nominated new products and services. The winners represent the best from this very impressive group.”

The winning organizations receive a variety of honors including the opportunity to ring the Nasdaq Bell in New York City, and meetings with the Mayor of Chicago, Governor of Illinois and Cook County President.
