The Edison Awards, an annual celebration of innovation and technology, aims to make Fort Myers the Cooperstown of Innovation, said Executive Director Frank Bonafilia.

It’s also becoming a showcase, networking opportunity and idea accelerator for the Black business community through the Lewis Latimer Fellowship. Bonafilia co-founded the fellowship with Jon Cropper, managing partner and founder of Futurlogic. He has assisted marketing international brands including Sony, Starbucks, Telefonica, Jaguar and AT&T among others.

More than 100 leaders from companies from 23 countries will descend upon Fort Myers for tonight’s black-tie awards ceremony at the Caloosa Sound Convention Center in downtown Fort Myers.
