PROMETHEUS AWARDS PRESENTED BY LWBJ
The most prestigious recognition for Iowa’s technology industry, The Prometheus Awards presented by LWBJ brings together leaders from technology, business, education and government to celebrate the year’s most momentous innovations. The awards acknowledge individuals and companies impacting Iowa’s over $10 billion technology industry, which accounts for almost six percent of the state’s total economy and employs over 92,000 workers. Finalists and award winners epitomize great talent, solidifying Iowa’s reputation as a technology state.

“Since its debut 14 years ago, The Prometheus Awards has become the technology industry’s most prized honors,” said Brian Waller, President of TAI. “The only statewide awards ceremony to exclusively recognize Iowa technologists, these awards focus on the past year’s amazing achievements by technology organizations and their leadership. The awards are fundamental to the spirit and unity of Iowa’s technology community.”
