Eldir, Competing On The International Stage In The 2020 Tech Trailblazers Awards

The winners of the 2020 Tech Trailblazers Awards have been announced, with several early-stage tech companies recognised for their outstanding innovations during what has been a decidedly turbulent year.

In early November Eldir was shortlisted for the Firestarter Trailblazers Award. Since 2012, the annual Tech Trailblazers Awards have recognised the most innovative entrants and concepts in enterprise technology. The awards are designed explicitly for smaller businesses and start-ups, with the aim to recognise up-and-coming start-ups.

There was a lot of competition this year, with a record number of entries despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, which is testament to the growing importance of the technology sector. Winners were selected by a combination of public vote and a panel of judges.

“Awards such as these demonstrate how hungry companies are for technology-enabled solutions that allow organisation to continue doing business as usual, even during crisis” says Denis Bensch, CIO and co-founder of Eldir (Pty) Ltd.

While the award ultimately went to Codastra, with Eldir as one of the three runners-up, Eldir CEO and co-founder, Adriaan Heijns says that it is an honour to be considered for the award, particularly as Eldir was the only South African company shortlisted.

Companies from all over the world entered the global awards program this year. Rose Ross, Chief Trailblazer, The Tech Trailblazers Awards said; “Despite the difficulties caused by the pandemic we received a record number of entries this year – up by 50% from last year”.
