We’ve seen a substantial 40% uptick in entries from 2020, indicating the growing value of online awards for the enterprise tech startup ecosystem in an increasingly virtual world. The Containers Trailblazers is open to startups that offer innovative enterprise container solutions to companies based anywhere around the world. This category seeks to recognize the early-stage startups who are delivering next-generation application infrastructure that help containers evolve from developer laptops to full scale enterprise production success stories.
