The Pittsburgh Technology Council (PTC) announced finalists for the 2018 Pittsburgh Tech 50 Awards on TechVibe Radio.
The PTC’s annual Tech 50 Awards recognize southwestern Pennsylvania’s most successful, innovative, and thought-leading technology companies, which have become the backbone of Pittsburgh’s innovation economy. According the PTC’s annual State of the Industry Report, southwestern Pennsylvania’s tech industry accounts for more than 23 percent of the workforce with more than 9,900 technology establishments.
Started in 1997, 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. A new Artificial Intelligence/Robotics category was added this year to more formally recognize this emerging tech cluster.
“For more than two decades, Tech 50 has been honoring the Pittsburgh region’s most dynamic companies which are solving some of the world’s toughest and most pressing challenges,” said Audrey Russo, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Technology Council. “Each year, our group of finalists continues to push the boundaries of technology and innovation. Tech 50 gives the tech ecosystem a moment to celebrate the not just the companies that are putting Pittsburgh on the map, but also the tireless work of the women and men behind these awe-inspiring companies.”
Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Oct. 25 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh.
