It’s one thing to be among the finalists at the exciting 2016 Technology Impact Awards TIA Gala held by the BC Tech Association in the Vancouver Convention Center, socializing with the beautiful and dressed up local tech crowd, it’s another thing to win. When Freightera was announced as the winner of the TIA for Excellence in Product Innovation, it took us a while to realize this was happening to us :). Eric Beckwitt, Freightera CEO, recipient of the TIA award thanked the BC tech community, BC Tech Association, its CEO Bill Tam and the Freightera team in his acceptance speech and addressed the importance of creating businesses that solve social and environmental problems beyond the bottom line.
