The Briteskies team was honored to receive a Cool Tech Award from Inside Business this year. We got to pick up our hardware at the Cool Tech Awards event at Pickwick and Frolic on November 11. Katie Conaway, Gian Genovesi, Hannah Gierosky, Michelle Kowalski, and Bill Onion represented Briteskies at the event, where they got to network with fellow cool tech industry members.
The award, which honors the overall most successful tech companies in Northeast Ohio, was given to 25 outstanding companies, with five additional categories highlighting specific organizations. Those categories were Coolest Tech Leader, Coolest App, Coolest Innovation, Coolest Tech Start-Up, and overall Coolest Tech Company. Our friends at Findaway World were the deserving winners of the Coolest Tech Company award. Congratulations!
One of the highlights of the evening was a great video put together by the Inside Business team. The video featured various members from the winning companies, including our own Gian Genovesi! He got to talk about the coolest part of working with technology and what makes Briteskies so cool. Check out the video below for his responses.
While everyone loved the video, our team was in consensus that talking to other members of the Cleveland tech industry was the best part of the evening. The pride that each and every one of these companies feels towards Cleveland was definitely on display.
“I really enjoyed hearing about some of the inspiring work people are doing in Cleveland.”
“It was great to see the new technologies coming out of Cleveland. Cleveland indeed rocks!”
“It was fun to learn about other interesting and exciting technology companies in Cleveland, like Boxcast, who won Coolest Tech Start-Up.”
Another highlight for Bill was the venue. As he said, “Of course a tech award program was held in a bar!”
Thanks so much to Inside Business for including us on this list of creative and innovative tech companies in Cleveland. We had a great time and can’t wait to make the list again next year!
