2016 has certainly been a momentous year for our team at Surefoot, and we have much to be thankful for. Earlier this year we expanded our operations to New Zealand and Africa, and recently we learned we’d been nominated for a coveted 2017 Edison Award.
What are the Edison Awards?
The Edison Awards is an annual competition celebrating pioneers in human-centered products, marketing, and design. Named after inventor extraordinaire Thomas Edison, innovators and their innovations are judged on four criteria: concept, value, delivery, and impact.
A quick browse through this year’s nominees reflects the calibre of human ingenuity at work the whole world over. We are thrilled to be in the company of so many inventive businesses and entrepreneurs. Since the beginning, Surefoot has aspired to leave the world better than we found it; to receive a global distinction like this suggests we are making progress toward this goal.
We’d like to give special thanks to Green Distillation Technologies Corporate (GDTC), a fellow Australian enterprise, Surefoot client, and 2015 Edison Award winner, for the nomination. Like us, GDTC is in the business of innovation; their groundbreaking technology converts rubber tyres into carbon, steel, and oil, effectively solving a global waste management problem in an environmentally-friendly way.
Edison Award finalists will be announced February 2017, and the awards take place in New York, NY in April.
On behalf of everyone at Surefoot, thank you for your ongoing support. We wish you good health and happiness as we look ahead to 2017.
