“The Marcum Innovator of the Year Awards celebrate the drive, passion and genius of entrepreneurs who have chosen to walk the path forged right here in Philadelphia by some of our nation’s greatest innovators – Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein,” said Jeffrey D. Zudeck, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum’s Philadelphia office. “We are inspired by them and enthusiastically congratulate them, as well as the highly accomplished pool of finalists participating in this year’s awards program.”

“Philadelphia is the birthplace of many of our nation’s firsts. The country’s first hospital, first law firm, first banks, first insurance companies, first stock exchange, first daily newspaper, first magazine, first tradeshow and first patent were all originated by Philadelphia entrepreneurs. Marcum’s Innovator of the Year Awards pay tribute to that same spirit of innovation that keeps Philadelphia at the cutting-edge of our nation,” said David H. Glusman, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum’s Philadelphia Advisory Practice Group.

The 2014 Marcum Innovator of the Year Awards are sponsored by PNC, 44 Business Capital and First Niagara.
