In September, the finalists were announced for the 11th annual Idaho Innovation Awards. xCraft was honored to be selected for Innovative Company of the Year, along with The Idaho Transportation Department and Wilderness Wireless. More than 35 leaders from Idaho’s business, technology, and academic communities made up the Selection Committee.
The awards presentation was on October 25 during the Idaho Technology Council’s seventh annual Hall of Fame Celebration in Boise. Before the festivities, xCraft and other members of Idaho’s business and technology communities set up tables and displayed their innovative products and technologies through a showcase and networking reception of over 600 attendants.
After the showcase, the dinner and awards banquet was held. Each finalist was recognized and awards were presented to the winners. xCraft was nominated for Innovative Company of the Year, but lost the first place spot to Wilderness Wireless. Although we didn’t win, we still brought home some hardware and felt honored to be recognized along with the other nominees as a truly innovative company in our state and industry.
As a young company, part of our mission is to perpetuate a high velocity of innovation that drives the drone market forward. We will continue to push ourselves to break the technological barriers that exist and develop revolutionary technology as we move the drone industry further into the future.
