From 1999 - 2019, the CityLIGHTS Awards were the premiere event for the ITA community. Focused on celebrating the achievements of the companies and individuals that define Chicago tech, the awards were consistently a predictor of future success. 

After the ITA was acquired by 1871 Chicago, the CityLIGHTS Awards became part of the annual Momentum Awards. This joint award ceremony carries on the spirit of celebrating and recognizing top individuals and companies in Chicago. 

Be sure to catch this year's ceremony, on October 1, 2020!


Through its 20 year history, the ITA CityLIGHTS Awards recognized 120 companies and individuals, who in turn represent billions of dollars in exits, IPOs and venture capital.  Check out the full list of winners here
