Apex Awards – Colorado Technology Association Celebrates Innovation
Did I mention I love living in Colorado? Sure, I enjoy waking up to sunny days almost every single day! However, I also appreciate the Colorado Technology Association as a non-profit dedicated to encouraging IT innovation and professional networking. You have probably heard me discussing DEMOgala and C-Level at a Mile High, but today I want to talk to you about a true celebration of IT Innovation called the Apex Awards.
Apex Award nominations close on August 22nd this year. You can “buy a little extra time” and extend that nomination date to September 5th; however, the process is easy enough that you should still have time to get those nominations in before the deadline. Feel free to nominate other companies or even self-nominate. In some cases, you may be standing on a “powder-keg” of innovation – and be the only one who knows about it.
Finalists get nice media exposure. In some cases, becoming a finalist has led to additional investments in the companies. Colorado prides itself on supporting innovation!
The awards ceremony will be October 24, 2012. It will include a VIP Reception with industry leaders, a Keynote speaker, and the award announcements themselves. It is a great way to get the buzz started for DEMOgala the following evening (October 25, 2012).
Here is a video with more details. Evaluate whether you might know a candidate – or be the candidate – for nominations in the following categories:
Technology Company of the Year
Technology Project of the Year
Technology Entrepreneur of the Year
Technology Community Connector of the Year
Bob Newman Lifetime Achievement
Technology Teacher of the Year
Hope to see you at Apex Awards and DEMOGala on October 24th and 25th, 2012!
