Cobalt Selected as Best Tech Startup Finalist in 2019 Timmy Awards

Tech in Motion announces top local tech companies and launches public voting to determine winners  

Cobalt Robotics is recognized by Tech in Motion as a finalist for 2019 Best Tech Startup as a part of the Annual Timmy Awards, which they host to celebrate the top workplaces for tech professionals. The Timmys finalists in this category are chosen for their innovation, forward-thinking leadership and work environment. Two Best Tech Startup awards will be announced at a live ceremony this October, one for Judge’s Choice and one Community Favorite, chosen by public voting here online. Cobalt is a finalist for the Judge’s Choice awards, and may not be listed in the public voting arena.

Erik Schluntz, Cobalt CTO said, “At Cobalt, we care deeply about providing a great working environment for our team. Our leadership in the industry is possible only because of the team we have brought together and our dedication to bringing our vision to life — building solutions with robotics that are maximally helpful, to the benefit of everyone. We’re excited to be named a finalist for the Timmy Awards alongside all of these other deserving and innovative companies.”

“We are excited to recognize the top local startups on the Timmy Awards finalist list this year. These companies are not only attractive to talented professionals nationwide, but ones that strive for everyday innovation,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion. “Every year, the event series grows alongside the tech community. It reflects the increasing quality of startups here that we are able to offer two awards this year to keep up with the growth in the industry.”

Throughout October, this free event is open to the public and will consist of tech demos, entertainment and networking with top tech leaders.
