In the spirit of entrepreneur Jim McKelvey, LaunchCode’s Moonshot Awards recognize the efforts of St. Louis trailblazers — those working toward new solutions to better our community.
Meet the 2020 Moonshot Award Winners and 2020 New Horizons Award Recipient, Dennis Lower
The New Horizons Moonshot Award honors unique vision and sustained effort in pushing to the outer limits of St. Louis’ potential in bold ways. The New Horizons Award is named for the NASA craft whose mission is to explore the outer reaches of our solar system and beyond, answering questions about Pluto, its moons, and Kuiper Belt objects. Quite a Moonshot! Over the past decade as Cortex CEO, Dennis has brought to life his vision of St. Louis as an entrepreneurial and innovation hub. His work has forever transformed the landscape of our region, making Dennis the clear choice for this annual honor.
Congratulations to All the Nominees
Congratulations to all of the 2020 Moonshot nominees who are trying audacious things to move our region forward! Moonshots are bold attempts at a better future. The community at large honored these innovators by nominating them for a Moonshot Award in one of five categories which are based on LaunchCode’s core values.
