2019 Tech10 Awards

What are the Tech10 Awards?
The 2019 Tech10 Awards recognize the individuals and companies driving innovation and growth across Rhode Island’s technology ecosystem. These are the innovators,  the 
software developers, engineers, technicians, tech leaders and the ones inspiring the next tech generation. The ones with the vision and leadership to bring leading technologies into common place use. Our annual Tech10 Awards celebrate 10 individuals who are making an impact in the Rhode Island technology community.

Established in 2011, Tech10 is the opportunity for Rhode Island’s business and technology community to nominate its exceptional champions: employees, colleagues, clients, and partners. All are fostering Rhode Island’s technology innovation, passion, and success. The Tech10 Awards are presented in partnership with Rhode Island Monthly. As Rhode Island’s tech industry continues to grow economically and culturally, Rhode Island Monthly is shining the spotlight on our Tech10 recipients for all Rhode Islanders to see.

Candidates come from diverse backgrounds, company sizes, and areas of expertise.
