BURLINGTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management, has been named the winner for Growth Company of the Year by the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council (MassTLC).
The 22nd Annual Technology Leadership Awards were announced at the MassTLC All Stars of Tech Winners’ Celebration last night at iconic Fenway Park.

The category for Growth Company of the Year was newly added this year by MassTLC. The annual awards highlight the vitality, innovation and importance of the region’s internationally-respected technology industry.
“Recognition from Massachusetts’ leading technology association as Growth Company of the Year reinforces our growing footprint locally, where we continue to attract and hire the best talent focused on keeping people safe and businesses operating during critical events,” said Everbridge CEO, David Meredith. “We combine a category-leading market position, fast growth and a mission-driven culture to serve a wide range of customers—from towns and counties to entire states and countries, the largest health care systems, and many of the world’s leading companies—through our global, unified Critical Event Management platform.”
“We received hundreds of nominations across our award categories, and the depth and breadth of each and every one of them demonstrates the exceptional leadership of the Massachusetts tech ecosystem,” said Tom Hopcroft, CEO, MassTLC. “I am honored to be able to recognize Everbridge as our Growth Company of the Year, and to highlight their impact on both our local technology and innovation economy, and on the many global businesses, governments and healthcare organizations that rely on their life-saving and business continuity solutions each and every day.”
