“Chicago Innovation Award winners cut across all industries and represent the best in new product and service development from large companies, startups and non-profits,” said Tom Kuczmarski, co-founder of the Chicago Innovation Awards.  “Their winning innovations are solving a range of unmet needs in the marketplace, and we’re proud to celebrate their successes on a global stage by ringing the Nasdaq Bell.”

“When we created Esquify, we wanted to transform how eDiscovery managed review was performed and delivered through machine learning, analytics and data-driven decision making,” said Drew Stern, Esquify’s former CEO and now XDD Esquify Managing Director. “Today as part of the XDD family, we’re taking our innovations to the next level.  We’re very pleased to have received this honor at NASDAQ.”
