Enterprise tech startup awards entry fee savings ends soon

 

LONDON, UK – August 13th 2012 – The Tech Trailblazers Awards early bird rates closes just shy of midnight Pacific time this Friday, leaving enterprise tech startups with just a few days to make savings on their awards submissions fee. The discounted rates of $250 for the first entry and just $100 for any subsequent submissions means that entrants make attractive savings especially when submitting multiple entries. With stacks of prizes from the $1million dollar prize fund up for grabs, a comprehensive promotion campaign by the organizers plus mentoring from the crème de la crème of the VC and Technology industry, the early bird means even better ROI for entrants.

 

The Tech Trailblazers Awards celebrate and reward innovation in the following areas: big data, cloud, emerging markets, mobile technology, networking, IT security, data storage, sustainable IT and virtualization.

 

The Tech Trailblazers Awards prize fund, projected to be worth in excess of $1m, is supported by sponsors and industry partners including MIT/Stanford Venture Lab, the Cloud Security Alliance, Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), Prezi, Computing, Startup America, RealWire, Lissted, Launchpad Europe, Mynewsdesk, Wazoku, and ExecEvent.

 

All entrants to the Tech Trailblazers Awards  get the chance to have their technology reviewed by some of the IT industry’s eminent influencers from around the world. The extensive judging panel reflects the Tech Trailblazers’ pioneering “community spirit” approach to enterprise IT awards.

 

Information on how to enter the awards is here. The early-bird submissions fee is $250 for the first category with a deadline of August 17th at 11:59pm PT. Entry forms should be submitted before the final closing date of September 12th for consideration by the expert panel.

The tech community on Twitter will be asked to retweet the @techtrailblaze tweets of their favorite category logos.
