"If there's one thing about Victoria's Tech Awards that always stood out to me and our companies, it's the idea that anyone can be part of this community. Tech touches everything and, in its highest form, it brings people together. This event has always felt more like a celebration of community than of one particular sector. For me personally - as someone who moved here from a big city and as a non-technical tech leader - being welcomed and celebrated by these amazing people has been the highlight of my career."
The RingPartner team looks forward to the tech awards each year! It's a time to connect, check out what other companies in our community are doing, and celebrate everyone's accomplishments. It also helps that it is a really fun night.
"The awards opened my eyes to how many amazing people were doing great things in our city. It gave me the opportunity to celebrate our wins with the team, and to share in other company's success stories. I learned more about our local tech community in one event than I did the rest of the year."
"YOU GUYS!!! You sure know how to throw a party. We were totally blown away by our experience at the 2019 VIATEC Awards. The live band, the captive audience, the flying orcas—just next level. Your community was fired up and that energy is just so contagious. You guys are an inspiration!"
“The 2019 [Victoria Tech] Awards were pretty remarkable: The theme was brilliant and was woven in throughout; Bringing together an entire community that knows each other (due to all of VIATEC's efforts); Erin Skillen - who is ready to host the Oscars; Pure production value of an event with so many moving parts; Dan’s singing - which my wife won’t stop talking about; Rasool’s fundraising fury; The new trophies which are cool as hell. Honestly, I’ve had a smile on my face all weekend from attending.”
“What a fabulous event on Friday! It truly showcased the Victoria tech scene as an amazing place to be for aspiring, innovative entrepreneurs. Congratulations to you and your team for an outstanding event. I’ll put this on my calendar for next year."”

“This is a great way for us to hold up examples of some of our leading companies so people can recognize them, which I think is important because it’s motivating for other companies to see what’s possible, and motivating for teams that there is some level of recognition.”
