Singh was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a black-tie gala on June 13 at Navy Pier Grand Ballroom in Chicago.
“We are delighted and humbled by this recognition,” said Arvind Singh, Utopia CEO and award finalist. “Being named a finalist for this prestigious award on entrepreneurship is truly a reflection of our team’s creativity and dedication to driving continuous innovation throughout our 15-year history.”
Utopia invested early on in Utopia Labs, a state-of-the-art R&D facility, focusing on innovation around data management and data governance.

“Our customers and partners have been our North Star and have challenged and guided us every step of the way to believe the impossible is achievable,” added Singh. “That core belief, combined with a world-class team who love overcoming obstacles to create something truly cutting-edge, has made us the company we are today.”
Now in its 32nd year, the awards program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.
