The 16th annual APEX Awards, hosted by Colorado Technology Association, recognized the exceptional individuals, companies and accomplishments of Colorado’s technology community during a dinner Nov. 9.

After individual and company nominations from across the state were submitted, a panel of judges and past APEX Award winner committees narrowed down the field.

Ten award categories were recognized including individual awards for outstanding CEOs, CIOs, educators, talent champions, entrepreneurs and advocates, along with companies for Project of the Year, Startup of the Year and Company of the Year. One outstanding individual was recognized with the Bob Newman Lifetime Achievement Award.
