Tech Trailblazers Are GO: Awards Now Open for Entries – Early-bird Deadline August 17th

July 26, 2012

Calling all innovative virtualization startups: The Tech Trailblazers Awards have officially opened for entries at www.techtrailblazers.com. As we recently blogged on Countdown2VMworld, the Tech Trailblazers Awards present a fantastic opportunity for virtualization startups to present their innovations to eminent influencers in the IT industry, with a chance to win business-development prizes and services worth thousands of dollars.

Stephen O’Donnell, chairman of the Tech Trailblazers Awards judging panel and consultant, analyst, author and blogger at The Hot Aisle, said, “Tech Trailblazers is designed for everyone to be a winner. The category leaders will deservedly get their certificates and trophies as well as significant industry recognition – they also get exclusive attention, coaching and mentoring from leading VCs and CTOs. However, all entrants, regardless of how well they do in the competition, get valuable prizes and services designed to help grow and develop their companies. Tech Trailblazers has deliberately set out to become a unique part of the startup ecosystem, helping young, job-creating businesses with growth, publicity and business development.”

The Tech Trailblazers Awards prize fund is supported by sponsors and industry partners including MIT/Stanford Venture Lab, the Cloud Security Alliance, Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), Prezi, Startup America, RealWire, Lissted, Launchpad Europe, Mynewsdesk, Wazoku, and ExecEvent.

All entrants to the Tech Trailblazers Awards  will have their entries reviewed by some of the IT industry’s eminent influencers from around the world. Check out the judging panel here.

The early-bird deadline is August 17th at 11:59pm PT. The final deadline is September 12th at 11:59pm PT. Entry forms may be downloaded now at www.techtrailblazers.com.
