"The most innovative products and services for winemakers were featured in this special, curated Cool Products showcase. Featured products have been hand selected by the IQ Advisory Board and the Wine Business Monthly editorial team solely on criteria of innovation relevant to Ultra-premium wineries.

Fruition Sciences has figured out how to interpret and analyze the data so growers don’t have to."

" Club 600 was established in 1985 by a group of French-speaking business executives in New York City.

The Club 600 Entrepreneurship Award was created to honor the memory of one of its members, the late Dominique Mercier, who was a very successful business entrepreneur. "

" OSEO is a public institution which helps support innovation through subvention, guaranteed bank loans and funding of technical partnerships.
