About Austin Inno's 50 on Fire Awards

50 on Fire is a celebration of innovators, big and small, people and organizations, across multiple categories. Though Austin Inno primarily covers the city’s thriving tech, education, and startup communities, we understand that these sectors don’t have an exclusiveness on innovation. The unbelievably talented graphic designer at your agency is innovative. The enterprise company that helps fuel your small business is innovative. The non-profit you donate to is innovative. Your favorite food truck is innovative.

Innovation is everywhere in Austin and 50 on Fire is a celebration of it.
