SG:D Techblazer Award


SINGAPORE — After months of careful selection and evaluation by many of the most experienced judges from multiple industries,  SkyLab is honored to have emerged as one of the finalist amidst over 300 companies. SkyLab, together with its proprietory STA™ technlogy, was recognised as one of the “Most Promising” tech start up this year.

 

SG:D Techblazer Awards is the nation’s highest accolade for tech innovation and aims to provide recognition and endorsement to Singapore-based organisations and companies that have exemplified the spirit of innovation in their development of tech products and services, or their use of tech to achieve excellence. The Awards also aim to spur greater innovation from the winning companies and propel them to greater heights in the region and internationally, with the hopes that these companies will also blaze the trail for others.

 

The Awards is a merger of the bi-annual National Infocomm Awards (NIA) by then-Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), and the annual SiTF Awards by then-Singapore Infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF), with the goal of strengthening and accelerating digital transformation efforts. The Awards will consist of new award categories and will be held annually hereafter, jointly organised by IMDA and SGTech.
