AHEAD Nominated as One of ChicagoInno’s 2018 Coolest Companies

This post originally appeared on ChicagoINNO.

Chicago Inno’s Coolest Companies Competition, our 4th annual awards celebration highlighting local startups and businesses with the best culture, is back in full swing and we’re excited to kick things off this season with a great group of nominees!

We asked you to tell us all about your business, its perks, and why your company’s the coolest. And though you gave us a thousand different reasons – including free lunches, charitable initiatives, team outings, group trips, yoga, and much, much more – it was clear that, at the end of the day, if you love going to work everyday, then that’s really cool.

Just like last year, we will be announcing 5 of our winners “Superlative Style.” The Inno team will determine what superlatives best fit the winners based off the nominations sent in. The final 5 winners will be chosen by readers’ choice voting – and all will be crowned live at the event. (You can check out last year’s winners post for a little more info on how all of this goes down.)

Now, here’s a look at the nominees in this year’s Coolest Companies competition. The below was culled from our complete list of nominees, along with some additional internal reporting. Be sure to grab a ticket to the party on August 22 at Galleria Marchetti where we’ll announce readers’ choice winners and a few other category winners. And don’t forget to send in your votes for readers’ choice. Vote here or below!
