From the desk of Rick Penwarden's Blog. Hey gang! Every year CATAAlliance provides special achievement awards for innovation and leadership in the science and technology industry. This year Fluidware received the proud distinction of being nominated and winning the Innovation Award for Private Sector Leadership in Advanced Technology! We thought it would be great to share with you some information on CATAAlliance and why this award is so special to us at Fluid Surveys!
An award from CATAAlliance is not to be taken lightly. Short for the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance, CATAAlliance is the largest high-tech association in Canada. This organization has made its goal to catalyze the development of the Canadian business environment through the collaboration of its members and networks. Currently, CATAAlliance has claim to being the foundation for commercialization, market research, networking, events, access to other associations, and professional development across the nation.
The CATAAlliance Innovation and Leadership Awards are considered the most prestigious annual awards given to individuals and corporations by Canada’s advanced technology community. They are presented in recognition of exceptional contributions made to the science and technology-based industry in Canada.
On May 29th, at the 28th Annual CATAAlliance Innovation and Leadership Awards Gala Dinner, Eli Fathi, the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Fluidware, received the Innovation and Leadership Award. This award is presented to a business in recognition of its outstanding technological innovation and corporate leadership, which has significantly expanded the frontiers of Canada’s advanced technology industry.
To earn the award, a business must be established in the major advanced technologies industry and prove that it has withstood the test of time. Moreover, the business must have demonstrated consistent innovation and leadership resulting in the creation and international acceptance of significant world-class products. The fact that Fluidware received this award over some very tough competition, gives the entire company pride in knowing it is one of the leading Canadian businesses in the technological industry!
Here at FluidSurveys, we wanted to take a moment to thank all of our fantastic FluidUsers who made earning the award possible and helped us reach this important cornerstone in the company! It is also important to recognize that the award was given to Fluidware for not only its progress with FluidSurveys, but for the excellence being demonstrated with FluidReview as well. Fluidware is a tightly knit family and is extremely happy to be recognized for both its hard work and innovative style. We look forward to continuing our leadership as one of Canada’s top-most online technological businesses by growing alongside our users and facing new challenges in the future!
