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 scored 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.

  • Finalists are announced on TechVibe radio in late summer.
  • Finalists are lauded at a private VIP reception.
  • The public celebrates the finalists at the awards ceremony and dinner on September 25.
