"We are delighted to introduce the nominees for the 2014 Technology Leadership Awards,” said Tracey Whitehouse, TechConnex Chair and Chief Operating Officer of TGO Consulting. "These are exciting, innovative, growing companies worthy of special recognition in the most enterprising technology region of Canada. We invite the entire Tech Community in the Greater Toronto Area to join us at the celebration of success as we announce the award recipients on the evening of Thursday May 29th.”

The finalists were nominated by their peers from amongst the nearly 12,000 small and mid-size tech companies in the Greater Toronto Area.

“The Awards Committee has done a great job of selecting these finalists from the many nominations we received,” said Pat Shaw, TechConnex Executive Director. “It’s as if you have only 12 spots at the dinner table and you have to pick from amongst 12,000 friends. And every year it gets tougher to select winners because the quality of nominees just keeps rising.”

In addition there will be awards presented to two leaders in the industry: The Lifetime Tech Leadership Award, and The Community Builder Award. On Thursday, May 29th, the leaders of these organizations and their companies will be recognized at the TechConnex Awards Gala & Showcase.
