The Tekne Awards, created by the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA), were developed to honor Minnesota Companies and individuals who are working to improve lives through their groundbreaking innovations. The awards, which are held annually, recognize companies for a broad spectrum of accomplishments. Companies can either apply or be nominated for the Tekne’s, after which they complete an application, and are judged by a panel to determine their eligibility.
At the time that we were approached by MHTA, the Tekne Awards application was online, but didn’t carry the level of sophistication and functionality that the MHTA and Tekne staff wanted. We completely overhauled the site, creating a more user-friendly and manageable experience. The online application was streamlined, making it easier to submit applications online. A strong content management system was also created, and now allows Tekne personnel to easily and efficiently make changes to the application template and process.
