July 18, 2013, Cambridge, MA – The Mass Technology Leadership Council (MassTLC) announced finalists for the Council’s 2013 Technology Leadership Awards last night at a cocktail reception at Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge, MA. Several hundred tech executives were in attendance for the announcement, including this year’s award nominees.

“The annual Leadership Awards program was designed to shine the spotlight on great technologies and leadership in our region,” said Tom Hopcroft, President and CEO of Mass Technology Leadership Council. “This year’s finalists are an incredible group, representing technologies across the sector. It’s our honor to recognize their hard work and innovative spirits – two qualities that remain core to the success of Massachusetts’ vibrant tech community.”

Finalists were announced in seventeen categories. Two categories, Start-up to Watch and Consumer Product of the Year will include online voting. In the case of Consumer Product of the Year, ten finalists were named and the winner will be determined by public voting, both prior to, and during, the event. 

The judging model for the awards program included 55 executives, investors, analysts, media and thought leaders who participated in the finalist selection process.
