2020 NVTC Tech 100 celebrates the most innovative technology companies in the Washington, D.C., region
Rockville, MD – December 23, 2020 – Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC), the membership and trade association for the Northern Virginia technology community, today announced the 2020 NVTC Tech 100, a list of ground-breaking companies, leaders, and innovators within the greater Washington, D.C., region’s technology community.
“While this year has presented numerous challenges to every organization, it is encouraging to see so many of the area’s tech companies and executives remain resilient and committed to the health and well-being of their employees, the success of their companies, and industry advancement. Congratulations to DrFirst for being named a 2020 NVTC Tech 100 honoree and for the positive impact the firm has made in our region,” said Jennifer Taylor, NVTC president and CEO.
This year, nearly 200 nominations were carefully reviewed and considered by a panel of independent judges. The final NVTC Tech100 Award list comprises 100 tech companies and 26 executives, each consistently demonstrating dedication, vision, and innovation. Winners were celebrated at the annual NVTC Tech 100 Celebration, held virtually this year due to COVID-19.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the NVTC Tech 100,” said G. Cameron Deemer, president of DrFirst. “This means all the more to us because the greater Washington, D.C., area is our home—we celebrated our 20th anniversary earlier this year, and, most importantly, our solutions have helped healthcare providers and organizations take care of patients during the pandemic.”
U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) noted the award’s particular significance this year. “As a former tech entrepreneur, I applaud these innovative leaders and companies for their drive and vision, and for all that they bring to the Commonwealth. I also commend the Northern Virginia Technology Council for its constant support of the region’s technology community.”
