Microsoft today announced the winners and finalists of its 2011 Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year Awards. GreenButton was announced as a finalist in both the BizSpark Partner of the Year and Tech & High Performance Computing Partner of the Year categories, as well as global winner of the Windows Azure ISV Partner of the Year Award. For the second year running, New Zealand has a Country Partner of the Year, this year being awarded to Provoke. NV Interactive was also named a finalist for the Web Development Partner of the Year Award.
For us, this award is complete validation that what we do, and how we do it, is globally accepted and recognised. We are a fairly small team and we work long hours, doing the hard yards an internet start-up company has to endure - compared with the big US companies we've done it tougher with less, which is the kiwi way.
