HOTCoffee, Huntsville's longest-running startup networking community, will announce and celebrate the city's top-ranked Innovation Leaders at its morning meeting at 7:45 a.m. in the UAH Chan Auditorium on Friday, Dec. 12. The public is invited to attend. The Innovation Leadership Awards recognize initiatives started or expanded in 2014 as the most beneficial to creating a startup ecosystem in Huntsville that is vibrant, inclusive, and promotes a high quality of life for all. The HOTCoffee community, including over 400 entrepreneurs and supporters throughout Huntsville, nominated 24 worthy initiatives in the private sector, public sector, and social sector. The community then ranked the top three candidates in each of these three sectors.
