The 14th edition of Business Review Awards Gala, BR’s flagship event that recognizes outstanding achievements in the business community, will take place on March 4. We want to highlight the 14 categories in which the independent jury will select the winners for their exceptional performance in 2018.
The Innovation in Technology category is split into two sub-categories this year: Companies & NGOs.
The award recognizes novel, innovative and research-driven strategies, developed in/for Romania. The category is meant to cover the many developments related to the introduction of new products, services or campaigns, as well as the roll-out of R&D oriented investments.
Last year’s winner in the Innovation in Technology category was UiPath, for their software platform which helps organizations automate business processes.
