Corridor Businesses Represented at the Prometheus Awards

The Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance organized a bus trip for educators, economic development professionals, and technology employees from both ends of the Corridor to attend the eighth annual Prometheus Awards, hosted by the Technology Association of Iowa (TAI) April 9 at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines.

More than a dozen Corridor companies were nominated for awards and two took trophies home: Involta, of Marion, for IT Service Provider of the Year, an award it also won in 2012, and Farm Manuals Fast, of Iowa City, for Student Innovation of the Year. (Editor's Note: Farm Manuals Fast is the brainchild of Tyler Finchum, a BELL student and a Tippie direct admit student.)
