TEDCO announced the winners of its annual ICE Awards on Thursday morning.
With a host of Maryland tech scene players gathered at the Columbia Town Center Hotel, TEDCO CEO Rob Rosenbaum shifted the focus from the hardware on display at various startup exhibit tables to the shiny trophies they presented in the areas of Innovation, Corporate Excellence and Entrepreneurship. The annual awards spotlight TEDCO portfolio companies.
And the winners are:
- Analytical Informatics collected the first award of the morning. Coming on the heels of the University of Maryland Baltimore-affiliated health IT startup’s Mobile Ebola Monitoring System. When the company was first getting going, “TEDCO came along at the right time,” said founder Chris Meenan.
- Cybersecurity company LookingGlass continued the early 2015 momentum that started with the acquisition of CloudShield, and a $20 million Series B funding round. With the moves, the company, which has offices in Canton, now has a presence in California, and added 80 employees.
- OpiaTalk CEO Tom Popomaronis took home the award which honors individual entrepreneurs. “This is humbling,” Popomaronis said, before giving his team credit for the award. The founder and the Federal Hill-based company’s ecommerce widget have emerged as a prime example of Baltimore’s growing tech community for national media outlets.
