Hans de Leenheer, Independent blogger

All entrants to the Tech Trailblazers Awards will win a prize of commercial value, even if they do not place in the awards. For winners, prizes include CTO and VC/IPO boot camp and mentoring, plus products and services worth tens of thousands of dollars.The growing prize fund, worth an estimated $1 million+, is supported by industry vendors, analysts, venture capitalists, government bodies, the media, event partners and other industry-specific services.
