About the Tekne Awards

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 1998, and are presented by the Minnesota High Tech Association.
