MicroTech president and CEO Tony Jimenez was named Entrepreneur of the Year by the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic of Chamber of Commerce last week. Jimenez is the head of a Virginia-based technology company which has not only grown by leaps and bounds, but has also had a significant impact on the community. These factors prompted the MAHCC to tab Jimenez as the winner.
“I’m humbled by the recognition from the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber and thank them for this special honor,” said Jimenez. “Organizations like the chamber offer valuable support and guidance and new opportunities to diversity entrepreneurs.”
The MAHCC services and advocates for small businesses in the greater Washington, D.C. region, aiding their economic development, relationships within the community and business leaders, plus networking and educational programs for local entrepreneurs.
According to MicroTech’s website, Jimenez’s startup has grown by 4000 percent while increasing its reach to 500,000 users who have access to approximately 300,000 different products and services, the company website details.
In 2010, Deloitte rated MicroTech as the fastest growing company in the D.C. region. Jimenez previously earned distinction as Entrepreneur of the Year by the Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. He was also named a finalist for this year’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
