Delvinia CEO wins CATAAlliance Innovation Award

Our CEO Adam Froman was honoured by the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATAAlliance) last week as the winner of the 2016 Telfer School of Management Award for Private Sector Innovation and Leadership in Advanced Technology.

The award, presented at the 31st Annual CATAAlliance Innovation Awards Gala in Ottawa on Thursday, was in recognition of Adam’s commitment to commercializing digital products and businesses that advance Canada’s technology sector.

“Our Award winners and finalists have each demonstrated significant leadership as role models for the development of commercially successful enterprises in Canada. CATA is proud to act as an advocate for them, to share their stories, and to provide a platform of programs and services to assist in fostering their growth,” CATA President John Reid said in a news release issued yesterday.

In 2015, Adam announced the evolution of Delvinia to become a digital innovation company.  Innovation and R&D have always been part of Delvinia’s DNA but as the firm enters the next phase in its growth, Delvinia is increasing its focus on identifying ways to commercialize our innovative thinking into digital businesses and platforms with significant growth potential.

The launch of Methodify last fall – born out of Delvinia’s innovation framework – is an example of Delvinia’s success in commercializing its own digital businesses and platforms. And, as we look ahead to this fall, Delvinia is preparing to launch that innovation framework as a service to help other organizations to commercialize their innovations.
