NC TECH Awards Programs


Next Tech Awards

NC TECH, in partnership with Business North Carolina, launched the NEXT TECH Awards to showcase and celebrate North Carolina’s rising tech stars each year. NEXT TECH Awards honor a selection of individuals who are critical and exceptional performers helping to grow our state’s tech and tech-enabled companies and organizations, but who — not being a c-suite executive — don’t often get recognized publicly. Individual winners will be celebrated during a reception and will be profiled in an issue of Business North Carolina. 
The awards looks to honor contributors who go the extra mile, build products, grow revenue, support operations, and manage projects that propel businesses forward.  What all these individuals have in common is their exceptional business impacts, positive energy and attitude, and community engagement.
