The Vogt Awards provide funding, resources and recognition to entrepreneurs with products in the early growth stage.  Vogt Award recipients are chosen from early-stage entrepreneurs in the Louisville area, that have the potential to create a scalable business based on innovative, technology-based products that they develop themselves.

“The Vogt Awards is made possible by the Vogt Invention and Innovation Fund at the Community Foundation of Louisville.  The Fund was established by Mr. Henry Vogt Heuser Sr. in 1999 in order to help start-up ideas, products, and projects develop into viable and successful businesses that will provide economic growth, stability, and employment for the greater Louisville area (including Southern Indiana).  Therefore, the Vogt Awards Selection Committee will select companies that offer the greatest potential for regional economic impact.” – Community Foundation of Louisville
