“The chamber on Tuesday announced the winners of its annual awards, which will be presented Jan. 26 at the its annual dinner and awards ceremony.
Winners announced by the chamber:
- Distinguished Business of the Year is being awarded to Rosie Applications for its investment in downtown Ithaca, cultivating a modern workforce and being pioneers of the tech service industry in Tompkins County. “Rosie Applications is an incredible startup firm that spun out of Cornell and has been growing ever since,” said one nomination.
- Nonprofit of the Year is awarded to Cinemapolis as a recognition of commitment to the arts and theater in Tompkins County, investment in downtown Ithaca, and support of the local nonprofit economy. “Cinemapolis is currently celebrating its 30-year anniversary in Ithaca. Cinemapolis is not just a theater that shows independent and art films in its five theaters, but a member-supported not-for-profit organization,” said one nomination.
- The Entrepreneur of the Year is being awarded to Atlas Bowl for its investment in Trumansburg, development of a community recreational and culinary hub, and continued commitment to growth through collaboration. “Owner Todd Parlato and partners rebooted a long-lost institution in Trumansburg, created high-quality jobs in a small community, established Trumansburg as a can’t-miss hub on the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail and added a great ‘anchor’ in downtown Trumansburg,” read a nomination.”
