May 13, 2022

Coverage of the 2022 GeekWire Awards , presented by Astound Business Solutions, the Pacific NW’s annual startup and technology awards. See all coverage. The scene at the 2022 GeekWire Awards at the Showbox SoDo in Seattle on Thursday. It felt good to say it and hear it, and it felt even better to see it in action on Thursday in Seattle as the tech community gathered for the GeekWire Awards in person for the first time in three years. With a room full of innovators, entrepreneurs, CEOs, scientists, tech titans, talented teachers and more at Showbox SoDo, GeekWire recognized more than 60 finalists and honorees across 15 categories. There were hundreds of nominations and more than 16,000 community votes this year. After a rough couple of years because of a pandemic that kept everyone apart, being together again seemed to strike a tone, from the first award to the last. “It takes a village to build a startup, so thank all of you guys in Seattle tech for making this place a village,” said Linda Lian, CEO of Common Room, as she accepted the night’s first award — Startup of the Year. “We believe that nice people can come first,” said Anoop Gupta of SeekOut, as he accepted CEO of the Year honors at the end of the show. “Being nice, being empathetic does not mean that you’re not results oriented, and that you don’t compete.” “The Drunken Tenor” Robert McPherson opens the GeekWire Awards with a song on Thursday. (GeekWire Photo / Kevin Lisota) In between, guest appearances in person and via video included Seattle Opera sensation Robert “The Drunken Tenor” McPherson; Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard; Seattle Seahawks great Doug Baldwin; and President of the United States of America singer Chris Ballew. Baldwin addressed the crowd like he was rallying his former team in a huddle, commanding attention like he used to on the football field. “There’s a lot of power, a lot of influence and a lot of money in this room. And I want you to hear this from me,” he said. “I encourage you to realize the power and the influence that you have, the impact that you have. I know we’re here to have fun, but please don’t forget the impact that you can make in the community. Don’t take that for granted.” Former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin addresses the crowd at the GeekWire Awards. (GeekWire Photo / Kevin Lisota) Across categories recognizing deals, innovations, hardware, workplaces, geeks who give back and more, the winners paid tribute to their teams, their customers and the wider community for supporting the journey. Stephanie Winslow, a teacher at South Kitsap High School, was honored as one of three STEM Educators of the Year. She said she came to the event not knowing what to expect. She left the stage to a cheering audience, clutching a robot trophy. “As I was talking to people in the crowd, I was brought to tears by the excitement and the amazing things that are happening,” Winslow said in her acceptance speech. “As a teacher, you could have been my students. You are making your dreams come true. Your teachers would be very proud. Keep on doing what you’re doing!” Keep reading for all the winners and honorees from the 2022 GeekWire Awards, presented by Astound Business Solutions .
