Obtiva, one of the nation’s most innovative custom software development companies, has been selected as a finalist for a 2011 Illinois Technology Association (ITA) CityLIGHTS award in the Rising Star category.

The Rising Star award goes to the Illinois company that, through innovation in products, services or business approach, has grown to become a serious competitor in the marketplace.

Since its founding in 2005 by Kevin P. Taylor, Obtiva has recruited a team of extraordinary, talented employees. In addition to writing amazing software, all of them do their part to cultivate the Illinois technology community. Every day, you can find them leading, speaking, mentoring, tweeting, blogging, organizing, volunteering, sharing, networking and teaching. They are involved software craftsmen whose passion and talent drives Obtiva’s success.

Obtiva has grown to 47 full-time employees at its Chicago headquarters, expanded the range of coaching and training programs it provides, and in March 2011 opened an office in Denver to better serve customers in the Western U.S.

“We’re pretty ecstatic at being named a CityLIGHTS finalist,” Taylor said. “Obtiva has accomplished so much in less than six years. We’ve designed and built beautiful software for our clients, assembled a team of world-class software craftsmen, and made great strides in helping further connect and grow the technology community.”

The winners will be announced at the CityLIGHTS Awards Gala Thursday, May 12, 2011, at Union Station in Chicago. The gala attracts more than 700 people from 400 organizations including business owners, investors, legislators and policymakers.

A panel of more than 40 judges representing the Who’s Who in Illinois technology reviewed nominations and selected the finalists. Judges hail from organizations ranging from Microsoft and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business to Viewpoints.com and midVentures. The list of past winners includes The Point (now known as Groupon), GrubHub.com, NAVTEQ, Model Metrics, Smart Signal, Mayor Richard M. Daley and Jack Noonan.

“There is a growing energy and momentum in the Illinois technology industry, and this is reflected in both the record number and the quality of the CityLIGHTS Awards nominations this year,” said ITA CEO Fred Hoch. “Nominees range from start-up companies to industry leaders, and we are extremely excited to see the organizations and individuals that rise to the top in 2011.”

Public voting runs from April 18-29, 2011. Winners will be determined by composite score (50 percent judges; 50 percent community voting) in all categories except the CityLIGHTS Award, which is determined solely by the ITA Board of Directors. Votes can be submitted through end of day on April 29, 2011.
