VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Event Temple, A Venue Management Software Company based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, is pleased to announce that Pouyan Taghipour, Chief Technical Officer and Co-founder, is the official winner of the 2019 Startup CTO of The Year Award from Business in Vancouver (BIV). This is the first year that this award has been presented by BIV as a way to celebrate standout technology leadership and breakthrough innovation. Nominations were open to any qualifying technology executives across the province and Pouyan was selected along with just five other winners in total across all of the entrants.
"Pouyan has an uncanny ability to connect with stakeholders, transform their high-level business requirements into concrete technical requirements, and ensures that the change is effected in a timely manner at outstanding quality. He is both an excellent software developer, and an outstanding engineer manager, but most importantly he possesses the ability to explore possible realities and guide executive decisions that grow and strengthen EventTemple," said Michael Hall, one of Event Temple's first key hires as a Software Engineer and Security Expert at the company.
When you look under Event Temple's covers, what you will see is a collection of product decisions that continually expand the opportunities (and users) for the software as opposed to being pigeon-holed into an opinionated tool, solving problems in only very specific prescribed ways. The question of "what business rules can we enforce?" always seems to be replaced with "how can we allow users to use the components of the system while specifying their own rules?" said Cam Szarapka, an Integrations/Product Specialist and Software Engineer at Event Temple.
