Award Categories
Technology Company of the Year
DESCRIPTION: These Greater Victoria companies are the foundation on which our $4 billion tech sector was built.

They are growing, expanding and taking the time to give back to our community as mentors, advisors and cheerleaders for the up and coming tech companies. Judges will consider growth, impact, product innovation, market share and community involvement. This category has three awards available based on company size: 50+ employees, 11-49 employees and 1-10 employees. Choose the option below that fits your company size.
Emerging Technology Company of the Year

Startup of the Year
DESCRIPTION: These are some of Victoria’s newest Greater Victoria tech companies.

Product of the Year
DESCRIPTION: This category is where the innovation rubber hits the road. These products have market traction and that means sales. Judges will consider total sales and sales growth, customer adoption, market share along with market disruption and level of innovation.
