It’s no secret that the Puget Sound region’s white-hot technology sector is among the nation’s strongest. Seattle ranks No. 2 in the United States for tech talent, according to a study by commercial real estate firm CBRE, trailing only the Bay Area. Drilling down, though, yields some surprises. Seattle Business magazine’s 2019 Tech Impact Awards program offers a peek behind the scenes of some of the region’s most innovative technology companies. As one of our judges says, “It’s amazing some of the things these companies are doing.”
