The 2019 Xconomy Awards San Diego Finalists Are…

Xconomy San Diego — 

It was no easy task. After an extensive review of the many nominees for the first-ever Xconomy Awards San Diego, Xconomy editors across the country and a panel of local experts together narrowed the list to 42 finalists (listed below) across eight categories.

In the coming weeks leading up to the awards gala in May, we’ll be featuring brief profiles of all the finalists here at Xconomy San Diego.

The winner of our Lifetime Achievement award will be revealed later this spring.

All winners will be announced and celebrated at our awards gala at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa on Wednesday, May 29. The party starts at 6 p.m., and we hope to see you there.
