BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, HelloTeam has announced that it has been shortlisted for the Emerging Technology Company of the Year Award in the 2021 NEVY Awards, hosted by the New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA) and presented by Dell Technologies. The NEVYs, now in their ninth year, celebrate New England’s top innovators, investors and companies across the region’s health care, life science, tech, medtech, and cleantech communities. Final winners will be unmasked via a dynamic live broadcast and live at the House of Blues Boston on December 2, 2021, at 6:30pm.
“The NEVYs were born out of a desire to shine a spotlight on the amazing companies and breakthroughs happening in New England, with each year seeming like the nominees are even more impressive than the last,” said Jody Rose, President of the NEVCA. “That’s certainly no exception with our nominated companies for 2021, whose achievements in their respective fields are truly outstanding. We look forward to showcasing each of them at our December 2nd event and celebrating the continued strength and vitality of this region’s innovation ecosystem.”
With a focus on the regional business community, nominees – selected by the NEVYs Academy, comprised of investors from the region’s top venture capital firms – are both locally headquartered and locally backed. The Emerging Technology Company of the Year Company of the Year nomination goes to companies exemplifying New England’s leading place in the industry.
