Signal Honored as a “50 on Fire” Groundbreaking Company

It’s been a busy 2015 at Signal with honors from the Inc. 5000, EY (Ernst & Young) Entrepreneur of the Year awards, and Deloitte Tech Fast 500. Last night, the company added yet another achievement to that list – the Chicago Inno 50 on Fire award.

The 50 on Fire awards honor the year’s most groundbreaking organizations and individuals across industries in the Chicago area, recognizing inventors, disruptors, luminaries and newsmakers. Signal was selected as a winner from over 1,500 nominations.

“Innovation and disruption are core values at Signal, and being recognized for this through the 50 on Fire award is something we’ll truly celebrate,” said Mike Sands, CEO. “Since we founded the company over 5 years ago we have been changing the way that marketers across the globe interact with their customers. With Signal’s technology, companies are now able to harness and activate their customer data in powerful ways to achieve the marketing holy grail: real-time, people-based marketing.”

Other winners include fellow leading technology companies such as Sprout Social, Avant, and Jellyvision. Companies from education, food, healthcare, investment, and lifestyle industries were also recognized.

“Chicago’s innovation economy continues to grow every year in large part due to the continued success of those nominated for the 50 on Fire awards,” said Leslie Garbarino, President of Streetwise Media, the parent company of Chicago Inno.

Congratulations to the entire Signal team on this exciting achievement!
