Foundry 45 made a name of itself by building what’s new and what’s next in virtual reality.
Along the way, it built a strong team on the ground in order to bring their VR trainings to life.
Foundry 45 was selected as Atlanta’s “Best Tech Work Culture” in October’s Timmy Awards. The Timmy Awards, put on by Tech in Motion, celebrated tech startups, managers, and employers as they navigate 2020’s uncertainties.
Other Atlanta-based award finalists included:
- Best Tech Manager – Scott Kowalczyk of Banyan Hills Technologies
- Best Tech Startup – Stord
- Tech for Good Award – HatchWorks
- Best Tech Workplace Diversity – Six Consulting, Inc.
Atlanta-based finalists competed against startups from 13 other Tech in Motion chapters across North America. Judges for this year’s awards came from Netflix, Slack, Pipe, Nokia, VMware, and Paypal.
