LaunchCode is excited to present the 2019 Moonshot Awards! In the spirit of entrepreneur Jim McKelvey, LaunchCode’s Moonshot Awards recognize the efforts of the St. Louis pioneers of today — those working toward new solutions to better our community.
We invite the community at large to honor St. Louis innovators by nominating them for a Moonshot Award category.
One individual and one organization winner will be selected in five categories based on LaunchCode’s core values. The nominees in each category reflected below represent people who are doing great things for the community:
The Collaboration Award – Honors the organization or individual who partners most innovatively. Who is joining forces in unexpected, unconventional ways to work across fault lines for a better STL?
The Challenge Award – Recognizes the organization & individual who are challenging convention. Who is forcing tough conversations and then working towards building consensus?
The Dreamer Award – Recognizes the organization & individual who are building brand new approaches to better our community. Who is pushing conventional solutions to the limit
The Commitment Award – Honors the organization & individual who flat-out work hard, and without compromise. Who doesn’t back down in the face of tough odds?
The Inclusion Award – Honors the organization & individual who are on the frontier of advancing inclusion. Who is at the forefront of working toward an equitable St. Louis region?
We invite you to be part of the excitement!
Anyone in the St. Louis community can nominate a Moonshot recipient.
If you feel you are doing amazing things or your company is helping better the future of St. Louis, self-nominate yourself or your company! Just fill out our form to enter your nomination. The Moonshot Awards Breakfast on May 3rd will be a special morning, beginning with networking, breakfast, and program at Third Degree Glass Factory, followed by watching makers in action at MADE.
