PROVIDENCE – Technology hub Tech Collective has opened up the nomination period for its 2019 Tech10 Awards, which recognize the state’s most innovative companies and individuals.
The nomination deadline is Aug. 13.
The awards have been around since 2011, said Tech Collective Executive Director Joe Devine, and have always been given to individuals in 10 tech categories.
“In 2019, with the convergence of technology and disciplines, we are honoring 10 individuals who are making an impact in the Rhode Island technology community,” he said in a statement. “Candidates come from diverse backgrounds, company sizes and areas of expertise. These awards are not only for the [chief information officers] of the world; these awards are for the hard working, out-of-the-box, technology professionals at every level of an organization.”
According to Tech Collective, individuals can nominate themselves for the awards, or colleagues, employees and clients. A professional industry panel of judges will choose the winners, with a November awards ceremony planned.
In addition, Cox Business will present its Next Tech Generation Award to honor those new to the industry showing promise in innovation. A Lifetime Achievement Award will also be given to an individual who has dedicated their career to technology in Rhode Island.
Tech10 Award nominations can be submitted at www.Tech10Awards.com.
