Tech in Motion Names Regional Winners for Timmy Awards, Next Round with Industry Experts
ATLANTA, October 13, 2020 – STORD was unveiled by Tech in Motion as the Best Tech Startup Regional Winner in Atlanta, GA. After tens of thousands of collective votes during Timmys voting, STORD has been elected by the local tech community for exemplifying strong entrepreneurial spirit and innovation, as well as an ability to foster an outstanding work environment even in trying times. As Atlanta’s Best Tech Startup, STORD will join 10 other Regional Winners to compete for the National Timmy Award honors, announced at the virtual Timmy Awards Ceremony on Oct. 29, selected by an expert panel of judges.
Among the speakers and judges for this year’s awards is co-founder of Siri and Change.org, Adam Cheyer, Erica Van of Charles River Ventures, Bruce Wang, Director of Engineering at Netflix, and Nirmal Srinivasan, Software Engineering Director at Paypal.
“Through the Timmy Awards, we’re thrilled to have an incredible panel of judges to help us recognize the startups cultivating innovation not just through their product or service, but in their everyday work environment and culture,” says Mandy Walker, Executive Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion. “Our finalists and winners are also leaders who have produced an innovative product, disrupted markets, employed forward-thinking leaders and created a great place to work while doing it.”
Stord is on a mission to help leading companies build and scale optimized, cloud-based supply chains. We’re providing technology and freight solutions for shippers and warehouses across North America at a time when e-commerce is creating new challenges for supply chains and companies are adopting different software across systems.
“We couldn’t be more proud to represent Atlanta at this year’s National Awards,” says Jacob Boudreau, Stord co-founder and CTO. “It’s a testament to the hard work of our team and the strength of our technology and supply chain community.”
This year, Tech in Motion will host the award ceremony as an entirely digital experience, announcing National Winners via video to Finalists, Regional Winners and the North American tech community.
