We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Atlassian is joining the 2011 class of World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers. Thirty-one companies were selected for this year’s award by a selection committee composed of technology experts, top academicians, venture capital firms, technology incubators, entrepreneurs, innovators and Forum Members and Partners.
The thirty-one winners of this year’s award hailed from 13 countries. Past winners include some of the most sensational names in business such as Google, Mozilla and Twitter. Following the announcement, winners are covered in a variety of news media and will be recognized during the Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Tianjin, People’s Republic of China, later this month. Atlassian co-founder and CEO, Scott Farquhar, is featured in one of a series of videos, sponsored by the World Economic Forum, about entrepreneurship.
If you’re not familiar with the World Economic Forum, they are a non-profit that “brings together top business leaders, international political leaders, selected intellectuals and journalists to discuss the most pressing issues facing the world.” (from Wikipedia)
