Microsoft announced that Quantum Whisper, an emerging startup focused on customer feedback and agile product management, was named second runner-up of the 2010 Blue Sky Innovation Award.  The award recognizes Quantum Whisper for its market-changing approach to solving customer satisfaction and product management challenges, as well as for its innovative use of leading technologies.

The Blue Sky Award rewards companies who break away from conventional processes or go beyond marginal improvements in existing products. The best of these innovations will prove massively disruptive and enjoy infinite potential in the marketplace. Finalists were asked to present their innovative product, along with the market potential and business plan, to a panel of Microsoft and industry experts for judging.
