The Tech Awards program inspires global engagement in applying technology to humanity's most pressing problems by recognizing the best of those who are utilizing innovative technology solutions to address the most urgent critical issues facing our planet.
People all over the world are profoundly improving the human condition in the areas of education, equality, environment, health and economic development through the use of technology.
It is the goal of The Tech Awards to showcase their compelling stories and reward their brilliant accomplishments.
Each year, candidates are nominated and then invited to submit applications.
Individuals, for-profit companies, and not-for-profit organizations are eligible.
International panels of judges review the applications and annually select 15 Laureates.
Awards are presented in five categories: Health, Education, Environment, Economic Development and Equality.
Three Laureates in each category are honored and one Laureate per category receives $50,000.
Laureates are honored at an annual Gala event and inducted into The Tech Awards Network (TAN).
The TAN extends the award program from an annual event to a year round program.
The goal of the TAN is to create opportunities for learning, networking and exposure to assist the Laureates in furthering their work.
