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 
  • About the awards and how to enter 

Rose Ross, Founder and Chief Trailblazer of The Tech Trailblazers Awards, said: “What better way to celebrate 10 years of the Tech Trailblazers Awards than with a valuable resource for the entire enterprise tech startup community? We pride ourselves on offering startups not only vital recognition, but guidance and opportunity to learn from leading experts in our field.
