Last month, we were thrilled to announce our fearless leader Amanda Lannert was nominated for two ITA (Illinois Technology Association) CityLIGHTS Awards.

And now we’re especially proud to say she’s the 2016 CityLIGHTS Industry Champion (!), an award determined by the ITA’s Board of Directors.


While we think Amanda’s the bee’s knees (we’re biased), we also have to tip our hats to the other two fantastic individuals nominated alongside her:

Peter Wilkins, Managing Director of Hyde Park Angels, the largest angel group in the Midwest. Peter is a believer in entrepreneurs, and has spent years mentoring and developing startup leaders.

Matt Moog, CEO of PowerReviews, a leading provider of ratings, reviews and Q&A technology. Matt is a champion for the Chicago tech community, notably by founding BuiltInChicago and helping to scale multiple tech companies.

Congrats to all!
