The Boston Globe is seeking the most innovative people in Massachusetts — individuals who did the most in the past year to transform a business or their community. And we need your help.

You can nominate candidates online at The achievements of candidates could range from introducing a new product that changed the way people work or play, to launching a new effort that became a runaway success.


What’s important is that the bulk of their accomplishment occurred in the past 12 months. We want to discover those who are producing positive change right now, rather than honor those who have led distinguished careers or who have made a significant contribution in years past.

We’re also asking for your contact information in case questions arise, and for a description of your connection to the nominee.

Your nomination and all personal information will be kept confidential.

Last year, we recognized the work of a dozen pioneers who embody the creativity and ambition that distinguish our state.

The deadline for this year’s nominations is Feb. 1. The results of our survey will appear in the Globe 100, an online and print project that will be published in May.
