Every day, we at Technical.ly talk to technologists, entrepreneurs and leaders building in Philadelphia. They span different categories of company and job title, and have different paths and plans for getting to the ultimate destination.

Through them all, a couple of threads become clear: a resounding commitment to making an impact in their city, and the fact that bringing change is hard.

So, let’s take a night to get together and recognize the people, companies and partnerships powering the local community. They deserve it.

On Thursday, Dec. 12, the 2019 Technical.ly Awards are coming to Philadelphia, highlighting the people and teams making big contributions inside new ventures, and on the local economy as a whole. (These honors are the natural, albeit tech-specific successor to the now-defunct Philly Geek Awards, which we co-organized for two years, last in 2017.)

Join us from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Guru in Center City, where we’ll have a ceremony complete with recognition of winners and awards to take home. And our first-ever RealLIST Engineers will be honored that night, too; nominations are now closed, but look for that list to be published toward the end of October.

But first, we have to pick the award winners. And we need your help. Follow the orange button to vote in seven categories. Voting is open through Thursday, Nov. 7. For some added background, check out more about each nominee below.

Vote for the 2019 Technical.ly Awards

A little bit about the process: The Technical.ly Awards are an online vote highlighting the best in new thinking. The editorial team curates a list of nominees to be voted on by the local tech community — one vote per person. Though candidates can be nominated in multiple years and for different categories, no one can win the same category more than once. The spirit is to welcome in new leaders.

And the nominees are …

Invention of the Year

Impact Leader of the Year

CTO of the Year

Startup of the Year

Growth Company of the Year

  • Comcast LIFT Labs at the Comcast Technology Center — The space on the third floor of the new skyscraper that hosts an accelerator and programing throughout the year supporting early-stage ventures
