ShiftWorldwide becomes finalist in innovation competition
Shift Worldwide LLC, a Chicago-based virtual events production company with ties to Milwaukee, was recently named a finalist in Chicago’s Innovation Awards competition. Shift Worldwide delivers critical opinion and business intelligence via web cams and its customizable virtual communication platform.
“We are thrilled to be chosen as a finalist for this year’s award,” said Paul Trout, founder and chief executive officer of Shift Worldwide.  “Innovation is at the core of Shift.  By listening to our market, we were able to create a solution to a problem many marketers, leaders and educators had: they needed help producing virtual events and didn’t find ‘templated’ platforms flexible enough to meet their needs.    Innovation is all about identifying and satisfying client’s unmet needs and we’re pleased to be recognized for our efforts in creative problem solving.”
Shift provides a customizable virtual communications platform and combines it with a suite of production services to help clients produce bulletproof, drama-free online discussions known as virtual panel discussions.  
 As a finalist, Shift has been awarded a scholarship to attend the one-day business executive seminar, “Innovation Best Practices,” hosted by the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and has been invited to take part in the "People’s Choice Award" voting later this month.  From the 75 finalists, the top 10 winners will be selected and honored at the Chicago Innovation Awards ceremony, to take place at the Goodman Theatre on November 1st.   Winners will be selected from those finalists whose innovations are deemed to have succeeded in fulfilling unmet needs, sparking a competitive response in the marketplace, achieving financial success, and improving people’s lives.
