Fresh Thinking on IT Operations for 100,000 Industry Executives

London, 19th November 2013 – After a fantastic second outing for The Tech Trailblazers Awards, the enterprise information technology startup awards today announced shortlisted finalists across the nine categories: Big Data, Cloud, Emerging Markets, Infosecurity, Mobile, Networking, Storage, Sustainable IT and Virtualization.

The second edition of the awards received an increase in both the quantity and quality of entries making the judging quite a challenge, showing the Awards are gaining momentum amongst the enterprise technology startup community.

Rose Ross, founder of the Tech Trailblazers Awards, said, “We are excited about the number of high quality entrants we received and the judges really had their work cut out for them. We wish the finalists the best of luck and it is great to see the shortlists again represent a wealth of enterprise technology talent from around the world, not just Silicon Valley.”

The winners of the Tech Trailblazers Awards will be determined by the voting public and the judging panel. Which startups have the most promising technologies? The voting for the finalists will go live in early December.

  1. Hi,

    A rather interesting list of nominees doing some very exciting work!
    but some of the links seem to be faulty (for example – has a space character at the end, should just be )
    Cheers, HTH.

  2. Thank you – did the edits in a rush and then didn’t test all the links – more haste, less speed. Thank you very much
