Genesis10’s Dev10 Software Developer Training Program has won a 2020 Tekne Award in the Tech Talent Solution Provider category.
Presented by the Minnesota Technology Association, the Tekne Awards recognize the best and brightest of Minnesota’s diverse science and tech-based economy. The awards program began in 1998.
“The Tekne Awards honor the innovators and tech leaders powering Minnesota’s growing science and technology economy,” said Jeff Tollefson, President, and CEO of the Minnesota Technology Association, at the awards ceremony held virtually for the first time. “This year we were especially excited to honor organizations that showed swift and innovative responses to the COVID-19 crisis.”
Honored to receive the award, Angelia Brekke, Managing Director of the Genesis10 office in St. Paul, thanked MnTech for selecting Dev10, and applauded our fellow finalist, New Vision Foundation, “for their critical work in inspiring and teaching disadvantaged middle and high school students to code.”
Brekke also thanked those who made it all possible: “Dev10’s co-creator, Tara Wyborny, for her infinite passion and commitment to the program, our Dev10 Associates who placed their faith in our ability to launch their IT careers with great local companies, and our clients for collaborating with and trusting in our vision for a new solution to address the tech talent gap. Without you, the program would not have succeeded.”
