Just a quick note to list down APICTA 2008 Award winners:
PixSense PSP won Best in Media and Entertainment category
TPS Pvt Ltd‘s IRIS won Best in Tools and Infrastructure
Kraysis – the QA services company born out of LUMS – won the Best Startup category
Its good to know that PK tech companies are able to compete within in the Asian region. You have to note, as I mentioned earlier, that APICTA is more of an awards for ICT Services / Solutions firms and also that India isnt a big participant at the awards (atleast it wasnt in 2007), so I’m sure there are really big tech innovators within Asia that didnt compete there.
But at the same time it does bring out some pretty organized, very competitive from 11 countries within the region, last year being dominated by a super-prepared delegation from Australia. So it is still a great achievement to win among that competition, especially in the general categories such as Best Startup.
Congrats to the winners. I for one know the crazy schedule leading up the preparing for this event so its definitely a hard-earned victory.
