Idea Grove is proud to announce that Tech Titans has named Scott Baradell, the agency's founder and CEO, a finalist for its 2021 Tech Advocate Award. The award recognizes a technology advocate/champion for their outstanding leadership in assisting, advancing or accelerating the performance of technology companies and the technology community in Dallas/Fort Worth.

Idea Grove has focused on B2B technology clients for more than a decade, helping bootstrapped startups achieve nine-figure exits and established players pivot into exciting new spaces. During the height of the COVID pandemic, Idea Grove took on and promoted the work of multiple "technology heroes"—companies whose innovations and efforts have helped us through the crisis.

Since its founding in 1994, Tech Titans has provided leadership, promoted collaboration and inspired innovation among North Texas technology companies. The organization's members include the companies and individuals that create technology as well as the people and institutions that embrace, nurture and leverage technological innovation.

Tech Titans Award winners will be announced at the organization's gala on January 21, 2022.  Other finalists in the Tech Advocate category include Robyn Brown of Bold Idea; Karen Krygowski Bruno of Technology Ball; and Michael Hill of Cumulus Technologies.

Tech Titans Awards 2021

The Tech Titans recognition is the latest in a series of honors Idea Grove has received in recent months for its achievements and culture. In December, PRSA Dallas named Idea Grove Small Agency of the Year. In July, B2B review and ratings platform Clutch named the agency the No. 1 B2B service provider in the Dallas area and the No. 4 provider in Texas.

As a workplace, Idea Grove was recently recognized with a spot on the Dallas Business Journal's 2021 Best Places to Work list as well as  Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2021. Idea Grove also was named a top PR agency in 2021 by both O'Dwyer's PR News and the Dallas Business Journal based on revenue performance. 

In 2019, Scott Baradell was honored with the Career Service Award from the University of North Texas Mayborn School of Journalism.
