Why Attend Tech 50

Past attendees say:

“I always come away from Tech50 with some new and valuable ideas and connections. Beyond the value it creates for my business, it’s a huge boost for our region.”

“I saw old friends & made new ones at this year’s Tech 50 event. The Showcase of Innovation was astounding & it was really cool to see so many of the projects that the community has been working on. I was really impressed with the level of understanding & engagement that the Tech Counsel has on the market economy. It's obvious that they are an insider who is advocating for Pittsburgh businesses & the community as a whole.”

“Fantastic event to learn about PTC and the tremendous work on behalf of the industry while meeting so many awesome members!” 

“Tech 50 allowed us to see what great innovations were happening locally and the great companies within the area.”

“The Tech 50 is an elegant evening where business relationships can be sparked, where hard working men and women are honored for their innovations in technology and where new ideas can grow.”

Why Tech 50: Impact! 

The 2018 Tech 50 theme is Impact! In the Pittsburgh region, our member companies are making an impact.  There are companies that are helping other companies run more efficiently, helping people learn new skills to broaden their own horizons, making life fun and easier through technology and literally saving lives.

The impact that companies are making here in the Pittsburgh region is felt in the city, region, and the globe. These companies are critical to our ecosystem to attract new investment into the region while strengthening our existing communities.  

This is a cause for celebration!

How Tech 50 works


Members of the Pittsburgh Technology Council nominated customers, vendors, friends, colleagues, or their own company during the nomination period. 

A judging committee, comprised of member companies, read and score all of the nomination forms received. Based on the cumulative scores, fifty companies are selected to be a part of that year’s class of finalists.
