RESTON, VA – November 11, 2021 – For the second consecutive year, Altum has made the list of NVTC Tech 100 Honorees, a roster of cutting-edge companies who are driving tech innovation, leading economic growth, and making a positive impact in the region.
“While our nation continues to adapt to our new normal of living during a global pandemic, I am pleased that Virginia continues to be a leading tech hub of flourishing businesses and career opportunities. The NVTC Tech 100 honorees help make our region a vibrant and inclusive place to live, work and learn,” said Jennifer Taylor, president and CEO of NVTC. “I applaud these dynamic leaders and companies for their innovative contributions. Over the past 30 years, our Council has been at the forefront of our region’s tech evolution from the introduction of consumer internet connectivity and the dot.com boom in the 90’s, to the rise of cloud computing and data centers, and today cyber, artificial intelligence and machine learning. I look forward to seeing how the honorees impact the future of our tech community.”
This year’s program attracted 130 nominations across three award categories: Company, Executive and NextGen Leader. Each of the nominations were carefully reviewed and considered by a panel of independent judges including Keith Kaetzel, partner at KPMG; Sam Maness, managing director, defense and government investment banking at Raymond James & Associates; and John Song, managing director at Baird. The final NVTC Tech 100 Award list comprises 64 tech companies, 33 executives, and three emerging leaders —each consistently demonstrating dedication, vision and innovation.

Our vision is to revolutionize the research process through our unique community-driven platform, and we are the clear leader in the grantmaking SaaS product category”, said Steve Pinchotti, CEO of Altum. “Our mission is to empower the entire research ecosystem with the tools and data needed to make smarter grants faster, and in turn, deliver scientific outcomes that benefit all humanity.”
