London, UK – April 3 2013 – The global Tech Trailblazers Awards for enterprise information technology startups today announced a call for sponsors for this year’s awards, which will identify the hottest new technologies blazing a trail to commercial success in 2014 and beyond.
Now in their second year, the independent Tech Trailblazers Awards celebrate technological innovation by actively helping startups grow their businesses with a prize fund for all eligible entrants worth an estimated value of US $1 million in products and services.
Joe Baguley, Chief Technologist for EMEA at returning awards sponsor VMware, said, “Sponsoring the Tech Trailblazers Awards has been a great experience for us. The awards provide tremendous value, raising our awareness of startups across the globe and enhancing relationships with the pioneers of the world’s most promising new technologies.
