HIVE 30 Under 30 Armenians In Tech: Identifying Talent, Celebrating Innovation.

PanARMENIAN.Net – HIVE Ventures has announced the finalists of 30 Under 30 Armenians in Tech to celebrate innovators and changemakers in the global Armenian community.

Founded in 2014, HIVE Ventures has a mission to catalyze the global Armenian tech ecosystem by investing in startups led by Armenian entrepreneurs around the world. The company provides venture capital, offers mentorship and a Silicon Valley network of leading founders, operators and VCs.

To highlight the talent Armenians are bringing to the world, HIVE Ventures launched the first-ever 30 Under 30 Armenians in Tech campaign. An overwhelming number of nominations – reaching just over 400 applications – were received overall, of which ~30% were women and ~60% were born in or living in Armenia.

The panel of highly-qualified judges chosen to review the applications and select the winners included: Orion Hindawi, founder & CEO of Tanium, an Emeryville-based next-generation endpoint management and security company founded in 2007; Vahe Kuzoyan, co-founder & President of ServiceTitan, which provides software to help home services business owners run their businesses; Tracy Young, founder & CEO of modern construction collaboration software PlanGrid; and Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit and founder of Initialized Capital.

Besides relying on their unbiased opinions on each candidate, judges reviewed the applicants’ education, professional achievement and potential, as well as the impact they had on their community, Armenian or beyond.

The final listmakers were diverse in both their backgrounds and locations, with experience in robotics, biotech and social tech entrepreneurship, operating from Gyumri to Silicon Valley. All the finalists had an extensive level of contribution in Armenian tech industry, as well as in their communities. You can check out the full list and background of the listmakers here.

“It was very difficult to narrow down the list to only thirty and that there were many incredibly qualified candidates who applied. We are very excited to watch each of these candidates grow over time and are sure they will each achieve amazing things in their respective fields,” HIVE Ventures said after all the finalists were unveiled.

“Everyone who was nominated was incredibly talented and we cannot wait to see what all these individuals will achieve.”
