Big Opportunity for Cloud Startups: The Tech Trailblazers Awards @techtrailblaze #TTAwards

June 20, 2012

Prize fund of an estimated $1 million+ makes this an opportunity definitely worth looking at

There’s an exciting new global award for cloud startups: the Tech Trailblazers Awards. Unlike other enterprise IT awards that are tied to a specific publication or event, these awards are completely independent and global. The global independence of the Tech Trailblazers Awards makes it possible to offer entrants a wide and diverse prize fund from multiple industry supporters—making this one of the best enterprise tech awards from a Return on Investment (ROI) perspective.

All entrants to the Tech Trailblazers Awards will win a prize of commercial value, even if they do not place in the awards. For winners, prizes include CTO and VC/IPO boot camp and mentoring, plus products and services worth tens of thousands of dollars.The growing prize fund, worth an estimated $1 million+, is supported by industry vendors, analysts, venture capitalists, government bodies, the media, event partners and other industry-specific services.

The judging panel includes the IT industry’s leading figures from around the world, giving little-known startups the opportunity to present their products and services to eminent influencers.  We’ve interviewed many of the judges on the Countdown blogs, including Simon Robinson, Teresa Cottam, Andrew Seldon, Chris Mellor,and others. We’ll also be interviewing other judges in the coming weeks on this blog and our sister blogs (in the blogroll on the right-hand side of the page).

In addition to categories for storage, mobile, virtualization, cloud, networking and infosecurity startups, there are also categories for Sustainable IT Trailblazers and Emerging Markets Trailblazers.

The Tech Trailblazers Awards will start accepting entries July 18th. To register your interest, please email innovate@techtrailblazers.com. You can also follow the Tech Trailblazers Awards on Twitter @techtrailblaze using the hashtag #TTAwards.

Full Disclosure: Tech Trailblazers is a Launchpad Initiative
