Today New York On Tech, the premiere early pipeline tech talent accelerator working to create pathways to innovation for the next generation, announced the honorees for the 2019 Innovators and Disruptors Awards & Ceremony.
The Annual Innovators and Disruptors Awards & Ceremony will recognize leaders in technology and business, specifically those from underrepresented backgrounds including, but not limited to: women, people of color and members of the LGBTQIA community.
This year’s honorees were nominated either by themselves or other members of the tech and business community. All nominees were then evaluated by members of the Judges Committee. Judges and NYOT scored every nominee in their category against 5 different standards: Their character, their community involvement, their contribution to their field and/or industry and the ways this platform could advance their careers/goals.
“The 2019 Innovators and Disruptors Awards is truly a needed platform for the tech industry to ensure we are elevating the stories and achievements of professionals who are leaving a lasting impact in their fields and communities. In attendance will be some of the biggest names and rising stars of the technology and business communities. They exemplify excellence and impact --- from engineering to venture capital,” said Jessica Santana and Evin Robinson, the co-founders of New York On Tech.
