Endorsement of an innovation by GInI is GInI’s recognition of a specific, individual innovation that a business has conceived and implemented, as measured by that innovation’s value and actual business impact. Endorsement thus serves as a means of validating the business’ efforts and outcomes without requiring it to reveal confidential details to the public.

Endorsement further signifies that the innovation involved has demonstrated its true merit on the basis of actual adoption, usage, and business impact, delivering value where none had existed previously. Endorsement is an honorable achievement that can meets GInI’s strict qualifications.
