The highly successful Tech Trailblazers Awards today introduced an additional category to reflect growing industry interest and engagement in the Internet of Things (IoT). In addition to existing enterprise technology categories such as cloud, infosecurity and big data, the Tech Trailblazers Awards will now feature IoT as a dedicated category.
Jeremy Geelan, veteran keynote speaker, industry commentator, Web executive, and Founder and Chair of the IoT Expo conference series, said, “Disruptors and incumbents of the infrastructure sector are equally energised by the increasing momentum of the Internet of Things. As the era of hyper-connectivity really begins to gather pace, the addition of an IoT category to the Tech Trailblazers Awards is perfectly timed.”
Geelan will be one of the three judges of the new category, along with at least two other global IoT experts to be confirmed later this month.
The Tech Trailblazers Awards is an innovative international awards platform for startups which gives more than just recognition to the best ideas and innovation. Winners are awarded with prizes worth thousands of dollars from an estimated US $1 million prize fund to fuel the growth of their business. These include expert mentoring, exposure to investors, business development tools and more. The Tech Trailblazers Awards prize fund, again projected to be worth in excess of $1 m, is supported by sponsors and industry partners including the Cloud Security Alliance, Computing, Gigaom, Innovation Warehouse, Mynewsdesk, RealWire, VMware, and many others.
Enterprise IT startups can enter the following categories: big data, cloud, emerging markets, IoT, mobile technology, networking, IT security, storage, sustainable IT and virtualisation. All entrants will also be automatically entered free of charge for Regional Trailblazers Cups, a further chance to win an award, and be awarded Regional Trailblazer for their geographical region.
