YEC Members and Companies Recognized as Outstanding in Their Fields

YEC members and companies continued to collect awards across prestigious organizations this past spring. This week, we wanted to give another nod to these notable members. Read on to see who's been breaking stereotypes, revolutionizing technology and more. If you're a member and have recently won an award, we want to hear all about it!

1. Shalyn Dever, Co-founder and Director of Technology of Chatter Buzz Media


Shalyn Dever was honored as a one of the Women To Watch at the annual Women Who Mean Business Awards hosted by the Orlando Business Journal on April 28. The annual awards recognizes businesswomen in every industry from law to finance, technology, education and more in the Central Florida community. Dever was noted as a pioneer in technology, a huge accomplishment in the male-dominated industry. She managed commercial and military programs for Fortune 100 and 500 companies. As a leader, she grew a team of two into a team of 20 and counting. Dever continues to make strides as the Director of Technology at Chatter Buzz Media.

2. AJ Shankar, CEO and Founder of Everlaw


Gartner released their Magic Quadrant analysis of the e-discovery field, in which they named Everlaw a "Vendor to Watch." The list recognizes companies that offer technology which enables e-discovery. Gartner notes that companies like Everlaw show innovation in their delivery models. Everlaw’s streamlined interface minimizes the amount of user training needed as well as the time needed to complete document review. This will revolutionize e-discovery for government agencies, corporations and law firms.

3. Rob Riggs, Founder of Your Design Online


It's no surprise that some of our member companies are the best to work for, and Your Design Online proves it. The tech design company received the 2015 "Best and Brightest Companies to Work For" in Atlanta, Georgia. Recipients of this prestigious award have distinguished themselves as having the most "innovative and thoughtful human resources" approaches. Your Design Online was recognized for building a strong community and a happy work environment for employees.

Congratulations again to these outstanding members! YEC members: please share your accomplishments, including funding rounds, new product/service launches, partnerships, expansions and more at yec.co/accolades.
