Awarding Innovative Valley Businesses, Educators, Leaders, and Entrepreneurs (May 4, 2022)
Once a year, the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council highlights local tech innovation. We celebrate the successes of technology firms, organizations, and programs in the region — and the entrepreneurs, innovators, leaders, and educators behind those successes. We received nominations in 8 award categories from Feb. 15 to March 15 – and announced the winners on May 4. (Tech Nite 22 Nominees)
It was some of the best networking we’ve had in a while!

Largest SVTC Event Of The Year with High Visibility
Tech Nite is the largest annual technology event in the Valley and will take place on Wed, May 4, 2022. We will gather in person at the JMU Festival Center for some of the best tech networking, dinner, a keynote, and the announcement of the winners. (Reservations are currently closed: SVTC Tech Nite Reservations.)
During Tech Nite, approx. 275 attendees honor and recognize the technology innovators of the area. Tech users and creators -educators, leaders, developers, entrepreneurs, et al- attend, network with each other, and celebrate the innovative companies and organizations in the region. The recognition helps organizations and individuals immensely — the winning organization is able to expand its network, attract employees, and obtain publicity inside and often outside of the local region.
