A who’s who of D.C. tech gathered at the Capital One headquarters in McLean, Va., for the unveiling of D.C.’s first three Timmy Awards winners.

The event focused on three categories — best tech startup, best tech manager and best tech work culture.

Hosted by Tech in Motion, nominees for the awards were chosen on the basis of public votes. Finalists, then, were selected based on the quality of their submission. There were 10 finalists in each category that were, again, voted on by the public to select an overall winner.

Here’s who came out on top:

Best technology manager:
