11th Annual Awards Program To Spotlight Technology Innovation

The 2008 Mass Technology Leadership Awards program will spotlight the companies, people, and technologies that exemplify the best and the brightest in the Massachusetts technology community. It recognizes companies and individuals who epitomize leadership and excellence in business and technology.

The awards are the first and only awards to equally recognize outstanding achievement in the development and implementation of technology. In 2008, the Council received over 160 nominations for the awards and recently announced this year’s finalists at two summer networking sessions. A select group of industry leaders and influencers in the Massachusetts technology community serve on the Awards Selection Committee and will vote on the award winners in the fall.
