An Indianapolis-based nonprofit developer of online courses and educational materials is the winner of a $15,000 prize from South Bend-based Teachers Credit Union for innovative adjustments to its business operations in response to the pandemic.
Certell.org has been selected as the winner of the TCU Innovate! Business Challenge. Certell.org will receive $15,000 and four other honorees will receive $5,000 each in the competition.
TCU invited its business members to share how they adapted and evolved their business operations in response to the healthcare crisis.
“The coronavirus pandemic has created economic conditions that have forced businesses and nonprofits to make unexpected adjustments — and this competition has highlighted just how well they have adapted,” said Paul Marsh, TCU’s president and chief executive officer. “Our business members have shown great innovation in their operations, products and services, and we’re proud to support some of the best ideas.”
The other winners include:
- Bamar Plastics, a South Bend-based producer of high precision insert-molded automotive components.
- Scarpe, an Italian restaurant in downtown Valparaiso.
- Sip & Share Wines, an Indianapolis-based boutique vegan winery.
- Unity Gardens, a series of community gardens in South Bend that teaches people to grow their own food.
