The New Hampshire High Technology Council’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards Program honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the advancement of technology-based businesses in NH. Applications for the award were solicited through universities, corporations, attorneys, bankers, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
Any founder, owner, or manager of a business in New Hampshire who successfully organized, developed, or managed a technology-based concept into a commercial product or service was eligible.
The Awards Program promotes high tech business development and honors New Hampshire’s leading technology entrepreneurs by calling attention to their success, and encouraging the formation of the next generation of high technology ventures.
The annual event, held in May, regularly attracts more than 300 influential leaders of tech-based companies from across the region and is one of the top networking events for those in or interested in NH’s technology sector.
Since its start in 1988, NHHTC EOY has recognized more than 50 New Hampshire entrepreneurs for demonstrating leadership, ingenuity and innovation among the technology sector. These entrepreneurs have employed thousands of individuals in New Hampshire’s tech sector and helped pump billions into the state’s economy.
