The Oregon Technology Awards celebrates excellence and achievement in the region's technology industry and honors outstanding individuals with prestigious Lifetime Achievement and Technology Executive of the Year awards, and seven companies are recognized for their accomplishments, leadership and commitment to the industry and community.
All technology sectors are eligible, including systems, hardware and communications software, internet, mobile and other application companies, technology service companies, biotechnology, medical device, and other life science companies, and environmental science and energy companies. Furthermore, companies from industries not traditionally characterized as technology companies, are also eligible if they have an extraordinary commitment to innovation or using technology within their fields. The company award categories will be based upon the size of a company not an industry segment.
