About the Award

Each year the Tekne Awards shine a spotlight on Minnesota's science and technology industry. The gala affair draws nearly 1,000 attendees from across the state and from technology areas ranging from advanced manufacturing and information technology to healthcare and agricultural technology. The technology community comes together on this very special evening to celebrate Minnesota innovation and recognize Tekne Award finalists and recipients - the best and brightest of Minnesota's diverse science and tech-based economy.

The Tekne Awards began in 2000, and are presented by the Minnesota High Tech Association.
