Each year, the Geekwire Awards celebrate the heart and soul of Seattle’s thriving tech community. Last year, Convoy took home the coveted Startup of the Year award. And this year – at the 10th Anniversary Award ceremony last night- Convoy was recognized as Geekwire’s Next Tech Titan!“This is a huge honor,” Convoy co-founder Grant Goodale said on stage. “This award has been won by so many impactful companies over the course of the last few years — it really raises the bar for us and encourages us to keep pushing hard to make Convoy the best company it can be.”
This award is a testament to our amazing community. We’ve got the best team in the world, the support of incredible investors, and a network of shippers and trucking companies that inspire us every day. It’s our community – and the individuals who are a part of it – that make us excited to transform the freight industry with technology and continue our mission to transport the world with endless capacity and zero waste. Thank you – Convoy would not exist without you. Finally, thank you to Geekwire for putting on a fantastic event every year, and congrats to all the other 2018 Geekwire Award nominees, finalists, and winners in our tech community who help make Seattle one of the best cities on the planet. #TruckYeah
