The nominees and finalists for the first-ever Xconomy Awards San Diego were an impressive bunch, making it tough for our judges and the editors to pick the winners. There were multiple deserving companies and people in each category. After much discussion and debate, we decided that these winners represent the best of the San Diego life sciences and healthtech community.
The award winners (listed below) were announced and presented with their trophies tonight at our sold-out awards gala in San Diego. Stay tuned for a slideshow of the event.
