This is brilliant. Finally, an awards series that goes beyond founders and executives to recognize the teams behind the scenes that are actually getting stuff done.

All success stories depend on the work of many individuals coming together to create something great. It takes much more than just an idea. Great to see so many builders getting recognized!
