PROVIDENCE – Tech Collective, a Rhode Island information technology and bioscience association, launched the 2010 Tech10 Awards on Oct. 6.
In its inaugural year, the awards will honor 10 Rhode Island IT practitioners and entrepreneurs who have “demonstrated a passion for helping others succeed in business and are pioneering in their technological and career achievements,” according to the Tech Collective.
“These are the IT-doers, innovators, and behind-the-scenes achievers who are connecting people and empowering business for 21st-century success,” said Kathie Shields, executive director of Tech Collective.
Nominations are being accepted until Nov. 5 at www.tech-collective.org. Those who want to nominate themselves can apply until Nov. 19.
The winners will be recognized at a ceremony on Jan. 26 at the R.I. School of Design’s Chace Center in Providence. Three of the Tech10 recipients will be selected for “special recognition” to be announced at the event. •
