The Pittsburgh Technology Council (PTC) announced the category leaders for the 2019 Tech 50 Awards at the Wyndham Grand in Downtown Pittsburgh.
Since 1997, the Tech 50 Awards recognize southwestern Pennsylvania’s most successful, innovative, and thought-leading technology companies, which have become the backbone of Pittsburgh’s new economy.
The awards represent transformative technology centers of excellence with tech companies at all stages of growth. Tech 50 also recognizes the region’s top tech executives with its “CEO of the Year” award.
This year’s Tech 50 introduced two new categories – FinTech and Community – to recognize new, growing tech sectors in the region.
“Every year, the Tech Council evolves and tweaks Tech 50 to accurately reflect our region’s technology ecosystem,” said PTC President and CEO Audrey Russo. “Creating these new competitive categories spotlights our strengths in these fast-growing and ever-evolving sectors.”
Each year, the PTC canvasses the region for the most distinguished public and private technology-oriented companies, and the Tech 50 awards honor those companies that demonstrated the strongest growth and advancement in product or sales success, corporate citizenship, job growth and retention, industry achievement and innovative product or technology.
“This is the biggest night in Pittsburgh’s tech industry,” said Russo. “We want to congratulate all of the category leaders and finalists. They are defining our region’s tech sector.”
Here’s a look at the 2019 Tech 50 Category Leaders:
