Carbonite Wins New England Innovation Award

by Lynnette Nolan | May 14, 2010

Last night Carbonite was selected as a winner of the New England Innovation Awards by the Small Business Association of New England.

Over 160 companies were selected to participate in the awards process and present to a panel of judges why their company should be chosen as one of the most innovative and successful companies in New England.

Carbonite was selected as one of the 16 finalists two weeks ago and, after a final presentation to the judges, we were selected as a winner! Our president and COO, Keith, was even told by one of the lead judges that Carbonite was actually the top point winner with the 50 judges.

Some of the past winners of this award are:

  • Ben and Jerry's
  • Genzyme
  • iRobot
  • Nantucket Nectars
  • Staples
  • The Mathworks

This award means a lot to the Carbonite team. We're constantly working hard to bring innovation into our products, while at the same time keeping them as simple and easy-to-use as possible. Taking complex technology and making it simple is no small feat, and we're honored to be recognized for our innovation and the strides we've taken to make online backup available to the average consumer.

CEO, Carbonite
