The Pittsburgh Technology Council (PTC) announced finalists for the 2018 Pittsburgh Tech 50 Awards on TechVibe Radio. The PTC’s annual Tech 50 Awards recognize southwestern Pennsylvania’s most successful, innovative, and thought-leading technology companies, which have become the backbone of Pittsburgh’s innovation economy. According the PTC’s annual State of the Industry Report, southwestern Pennsylvania’s tech industry accounts for more than 23 percent of the workforce with more than 9,900 technology establishments. Started in 1997, the awards represent transformative technology centers of excellence with tech companies at all stages of growth. Tech 50 also recognizes the region’s top tech executives. A new Artificial Intelligence/Robotics category was added this year to more formally recognize this emerging tech cluster.
