Rose Ross, founder of the Tech Trailblazers Awards, said:  “Our goal in our first year was to create a truly global award for enterprise tech startups with prizes that would actually help them grow their businesses. The Tech Trailblazers has proved itself as the enterprise tech world’s independent award dedicated to discovering the hottest new enterprise tech innovations from around the world.”

She added: “I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in our first incredible year—our wonderful sponsors and industry supporters, the amazing judges, the voting public, and, of course, the entrants and their PR teams. The Tech Trailblazers Awards 2012 has proved that technological innovation is not just for the so-called ‘major players:’ Exciting new technologies are being developed all over the world by fledgling companies that need only the recognition and resources to succeed. We look forward to watching our winners flourish in 2013 and welcoming even more entrants to the awards next year.”

 

The Tech Trailblazers Awards are fantastic from an ROI perspective. Unlike virtually all other enterprise technology awards, the Tech Trailblazers Awards give prizes to all of the entrants—not just the finalists and winners. The 2012 prize fund is supported by sponsors and industry supporters including: Amoo Venture Capital Advisory, beSUCCESS, the Cloud Security Alliance, Computing, The Data Chain, ExecEvent, The Green Grid, Launchpad Europe, Lissted, MIT/Stanford Venture Lab, Mynewsdesk, The Next Silicon Valley, Outsource, Prezi, RealWire, StarTau, Startup America, the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), TiE Silicon Valley, VMware, and Wazoku.

 

All 2012 winners and runners-up will receive the prizes early in the new year to jumpstart their 2013 activities.
