Awarding Innovative Valley Businesses, Educators, Leaders, and Entrepreneurs
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. This is the council’s biggest to-do of the year. At this premier dinner, in 2021 again held virtually and remote, using a platform called Remo, the networking opportunities are unparalleled. Tech Nite is the largest annual technology event in the Valley. (Remo facilitates excellent networking because it enables attendees to move from table to table freely, at will.) Nomination submissions closed on Monday, May 3. The judges met the following week and we announced the 19 nominees. Read about they’ve done to be nominated: Tech Nite 21 Nomination Summaries & Program (pdf).
Largest SVTC Event Of The Year
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.
