The 16th annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium today announced the 10 finalists for its 2019 Innovation Showcase. The selected companies have developed cutting edge solutions that provide both strong value and innovation to the enterprise IT space. The finalists will receive key exposure to many of the world’s most creative and influential IT executives at the Symposium on May 22, 2019.
After careful consideration, the Innovation Showcase judges chose these 10 companies because they:

Are a start-up with less than $10 million in 2018 annual revenues;
Are selling enterprise IT solutions to CIOs or corporate IT departments; and
Show innovation and/or strategic value and potential impact on the top and/or bottom lines.
