Nominations for Tech Movers & Shakers in the Caribbean

We inviting nominations for “Tech Movers & Shakers in the Caribbean”. Successful submissions will be featured in a new series to be launched in 2013.

http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/agree-terms.php?id=10079553in 2013, ICT Pulse plans to launch a series in which we profile innovative people operating in the ICT/tech industry from across the Caribbean.

This project was initially conceived soon after the International Computer and Electronics Show (CES), which held in January in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES is considered one of the premier trade events, where cutting edge and concept products are showcased, and among the regional tech community, there was palpable excitement, about what new products would be featured that we might soon see on the market. However, it did prompt the question, “what innovative things are going on in the region?” and “who are those innovators?”

It is expected that in most countries across the region, there are persons in, or affiliated with, the ICT/tech industry who already have some visibility, not only among their peers, by the wider public. Although such persons may be featured, we are also eager to highlight those who might not be as prominent, but are being innovative and enjoying some measure of success.

We are inviting as many nominations for Tech Movers & Shakers as possible from across the Caribbean. Multiple nominations from the same nominator are accepted.

Please note the instructions for the questionnaire provided below, along with the criteria for favourable consideration of nominees. Specifically, the nominee:

  • must be resident in the Caribbean
  • must have demonstrated measurable success in ICT/tech sector either at the local or regional level
  • must be recognised as a leader, a pioneer, an innovator, and/or a game-changer
  • must be involved in outreach or have some impact on wider audience, stakeholders, or constituents
  • ought to be poised to greater things (considered a bonus).

 

We look forward to your input, and hope you encourage others to participate!
