IP EXPO partners with enterprise startup awards competition Tech Trailblazers

Tech Trailblazers, an enterprise technology awards competition for startups, has announced a partnership with leading UK IT event IP EXPO.

The tie-up will see Tech Trailblazers and IP EXPO (pictured, top) collaborate on a startup initiative during the conference, which takes place at London's Earls Court 2 on 16 and 17 October. More information is set to follow shortly.

"The Tech Trailblazers Awards is a current and innovative online awards programme that helps startups meet the right people and promote their companies to the global IT community. We're looking forward to working with the Tech Trailblazers this October," commented Mike England, content director for IP EXPO.

Tech Trailblazers Awards founder Rose Ross added: "IP EXPO is an established brand in the UK and Europe for each of the technology areas in which we are judging startups, and it is therefore an ideal partner for our first-ever physical event presence."

In light of the new partnership, Tech Trailblazers has also announced that it will be extending its submission deadline from 12 September to 26 September - you can enter your early-stage venture by visiting the competition's website.

Tech Trailblazers recognises enterprise information startups from around the world across eight main categories - big data, cloud, mobile, networking, security, storage, sustainable IT and virtualisation. It also doles out region-specific awards, like the Emerging Markets Trailblazers, which is designed to recognise up-and-coming companies from the BRIC nations.

Other noteworthy Tech Trailblazers partners include China-Axlr8r, Hippflow, AfriLabs and London-based Innovation Warehouse.
