A celebration of the past, present and future, Tech Trailblazers @ 10 takes a look back at its alumni’s (winners and runners-up) success since the awards began in July 2012. Its research reveals that Tech Trailblazers winners and runners-up have raised two-thirds of their total funding since winning their respective awards – which is close to a whopping $10 billion in venture capital funding. What’s more, 54 of them have since been acquired by leading enterprises including Cisco, DXC Technology, Google Cloud, Microsoft and VMware – to name but a few.
Other highlights include:
- Advice from Head Judge Steve O’Donnell on creating an award-winning Tech Trailblazers submission
- ‘Building the next generation of startup founders’ – editorial from Gerald Brady, Managing Director, Silicon Valley Bank
- More about the new Diversity Trailblazers and Investment Trailblazers categories
- Sound bites from industry leaders on key topics such as diversity, equality and inclusion
- Insight and expert predictions on technology sub-sectors, plus entry criteria
