2016 Tech Trailblazer Awards


The Tech Trailblazers Awards, the first annual awards program for enterprise information technology startups, has announced a shortlist of the most innovative entrants and concepts in enterprise technology areas such as cloud, security, IoT, mobile and many more. So far, the competition has been judged by a panel of IT industry heavyweights and their shortlist is now open to public vote.

In its fourth year, the scheme continues to focus around the ethos of finding innovation from anywhere in the world, from the smallest startups to more established players. This aim to highlight both up-and-coming and established talent from all regions is reflected in categories such as Emerging Markets and theFirestarter Award for non-VC funded early stage startups.

These categories run alongside the main technology categories of Big Data, Cloud, FinTech, IoT, Networking, Mobile, Security, Storage and Virtualization.

In addition to the esteemed judging panel, the voting public can now help determine who will win in all categories by voting online by 11:59pm Pacific Time on Friday 12th February 2016. To view the shortlist and vote for your favourites, visit http://www.techtrailblazers.com/shortlist.

Rose Ross, founder of the Tech Trailblazers Awards, said “Our expert judges have highlighted the star quality entrants, so now the public can help decide which innovations deserve the Tech Trailblazer title. The quality of concepts and offerings amongst our entrants this year has been incredibly high, so we’re proud to announce the diverse shortlist. Congratulations to all finalists, it’s now time for the voting public to influence the competition. We eagerly await the results!”
