2015 TechAward Winners [Click here to read full article]

BERMUDA FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION CAPTURES 2015 INNOVATION OF THE YEAR TECHAWARD

The atmosphere in the conference room at XL Catlin was electric on Thursday evening as the 2015 Celebration of Entrepreneurship and Innovation awards presentation was progressing through the presentations of the top Rocket Pitch prizes on the TechAwards. The competition for the Innovation of the Year in the Local Market was very strong with five excellent new technologies in the running causing the judges to deliberate long and hard before choosing the mobile application developed by the Bermuda Football Association as top of the category.

This is the ninth year of the TechAwards as noted by Aaron Smith, Chairman for the E-Commerce Advisory Board when he presented Nancy Volesky with a newly introduced TechAward category which will be know going forward as the Founder’s Award. “It was Ms. Volesky who started the TechAwards presentations in 2007 as a way of recognizing the achievements made in information technology in Bermuda and to further motivate and encourage the development of the sector through academic, industrial and charitable pursuits”, Mr. Smith stated.

Top honors in the Most Innovative Youth Program went to Code 441 Academy whose founder Jahde Eve’s mission of empowering the youth of Bermuda through technology captured the judges’ attention. The second place finisher also made a huge impression for the fact that it was 14 years old Ethan Humphrey’s for Saltus Student App which tracks schedules, assignments and projects. Third place went to Ministry of Education’s Gaming Academy with program instructor Neville Zuill accepting the certificate. Runner’s up included another 14-year old Saltus student Gabriel Jones who is an intern at Fireminds, Great 4 Learning a game coding camp of primary students, and the America’s Cup Endeavor program which exposes youth to the technological aspects of sailing.

Perhaps the most exciting new tech advancement to hit the Bermuda market was recognized as top prize winner in the Most Innovative Mobile Application of the Year. Hitch is Bermuda’s own completely mobile taxi reservation app allowing the user to hail a taxi from anywhere on the island, displays a cost for your trip, and track the path it is taking to reach you via a GPS display on your mobile device. Calvin Minors, Coy Millett and programmer David Burt were on hand to accept the TechAward. Ivan Outerbridge’s Bermuda's Very Own Events App took second with Ptix’s release of a mobile app for purchasing and displaying your electronic ticket coming in third followed by the team at Nova who turned a Chris Wellman’s summer internship project into the Crown & Anchor Royale mobile game.

Trunomi the cutting edge

once again was selected tops in the international innovation category. Following  their 2014 win with the introduction of a new revolutionary product in the consent-based Know Your Customer (KYC) data-sharing technology. Fireminds and First Atlantic Commerce tied for second place. Firemaids developed security credentialing app used at all of Lois Vinton America's Cup World Series. FAC was recognised for the sophisticated platform created for Digicel to manage customer payments across a multitude of currency systems throughout the Caribbean market.

While all these tremendous advancements were impressive, the evening’s highlight was the presentation of the Local Market award to the Bermuda Football Association. The Bermuda FA app is the response to the demand within the Bermudian football community for up-to-date information on a myriad of critical operational data including player authorizations, schedules, and standings plus scores, news, rosters, photos and more for all teams from the Premiere to Youth League. Custom created by Larry Mussenden and David Sabir collaboration with Sport-Ngin, this first of its kind comprehensive mobile application to manage a sports league’s activity has captured FIFA’s attention as a viable tool which could be used in other jurisdictions.

BFA proved to be tough competition for the other nominees in this category with Premier Market, a sophisticated electronic shopping platform for both major department stores and the smallest Bermudian business coming is second followed by another Fireminds nomination for a package tracking platform build for mailboxes Unlimited. The Parliamentary Registry’s field worker’s mobile voter registration app and the innovative 3D and hologram display company Intelisign Limited closed out the category.

In offer his impressions of the Tech Awards program on behalf of all of the participants Larry Mussenden note, “Everyone in this competition is a winner. Look around this room- there are people from such a wide range of backgrounds here. Take note of the great innovations we’ve learned about tonight. Take pride in the fact that you are among a group of people who are moving Bermuda forward.You are here because you the best – both in Bermuda and in the world.I congratulate the Ministry of Economic Development and all of the Department of E-Commerce people who put this awards program together.Finally, on behalf of the participants, I extend our thanks to the sponsors for all your support in making this event a reality”

In closing the evening, Dr. the Hon. E Grant Gibbons, JP, MP, Minister of Economic Development stated: “I congratulate all the finalists who continue to provide technology solutions that not only inspire and empower us every day, but also showcase Bermuda as a great testing ground and launch pad for innovation and achievement. This goes a long way in elevating Bermuda’s status of a sophisticated technology and e-business jurisdiction.”
