The accomplishments of CEOs in the tech industry are sources of inspiration and pride, while contributing greatly to our collective wealth. This is why, since 2003, the Quebec Technology Association (AQT) has been celebrating the role of all these builders with the CEO of the Year Award.

For 2020, the most significant recognition targeting the leaders of techno SMEs in Quebec will be of an unequaled scale. Bringing together winners and finalists nominated for the “CEO of the Year Award” over the past decade, the “Prix PDG émérite Investissement Québec” will, like never before, celebrate prominent figures in the tech industry. Invest Quebec and the AQT are proud to present you the 10 CEOs finalists for this anniversary edition.

How will be named the final winner of the 20th Edition?

True to its tradition, this important recognition will once again be determined by the vote of peers, and this in two stages. First, all the CEOs of tech companies will be invited, from January 9 to 20, 2020, to participate in an electronic vote supervised by the independent firm SOM Accounting for 30% of the score for all CEOs nominated, this first step will serve to designate the 10 finalist CEOs. Then, on February 5, it will be the voice of the 175 tech CEOs registered with to the 20th edition of CEO Vision who will complete the election of the final winner. The voice of the peers will count for 70% of the final grade.
