IoT Breakthrough: Our Mission

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of IoT companies, technologies and products. IoT Breakthrough is part of the Tech Breakthrough organization, a leading market intelligence and recognition platform for technology leadership and innovation in today’s most competitive categories of technology. IoT Breakthrough winners receive well-deserved recognition and third-party validation from an independent organization. Winners are publicly announced in early January, helping companies start 2021 out with a bang!


The Tech Breakthrough organization has worked with hundreds of technology titans such as Intel, Comcast, Cisco, NetApp, Sprint, HP, ADP, Samsung, Toshiba, General Electric, Philips, Quicken, Dell and many more, as well as groundbreaking startup companies through our public platform for recognition for standout technologies, people and companies. The winners will be announced and listed on the IoT Breakthrough Awards website, and winners have the opportunity to tout their awards at tradeshows, through news releases to key media and journalists, on their own websites, social media, product packaging and print materials and more.


The IoT Breakthrough Awards competition is open to all individuals, companies and organizations involved in producing IoT products and services. To be eligible, an entry must have been produced or updated after August 1, 2018 (2-year window).
