Between the East River to the New York Harbor and down to Jamaica Bay, there is a galaxy of technologists, entrepreneurs, designers and artists living and creating in their own interlocking constellations of creativity and commerce. So let’s get all of them together in the same place and honor their work this year.

Compiling the list of nominees this year was like putting together an all-star team. The roster is stronger than any we have seen in Brooklyn in previous years and we fully expect that many of those nominated will go on to become not just Brooklyn famous, but names and brands known all across the country and globe.
We can’t promise that, but there’s one thing we can promise: This won’t be a boring awards show. Nominees were picked by Technical.ly Brooklyn readers and staff. The winners will be picked by you, the voters, and the ceremony won’t have long speeches (they’ll be 140 characters or less). The gathering will be full of Brooklyn’s best and brightest, and also lead reporter Tyler Woods. Voting runs until Tuesday, Jan. 3.
Vote above, but check out the nominees below. It’s a collection of some pretty impressive people and companies, and really cool to see all that’s going on here.
