Aussie fast growth startup Zetaris wins TiE50 Award for its ground-breaking Networked Data Platform technology at TiEcon in Silicon Valley

MELBOURNE, Australia, 7th September 2020:

Zetaris, an Aussie fast growth startup that leads the world in analytical data virtualisation, has won a prestigious TiE50 Awards Program at TiEcon, the largest conference for tech entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley.

The TiE50 have been identifying high potential start-ups for over a decade. Zetaris provides a unique, world-leading analytical data virtualisation solution that massively simplifies and expedites data platform building, governance and data access across the enterprise.

Commenting on the award win, Mr Vinay Samuel, founder and CEO of Zetaris, enthused, “We are thrilled to receive this recognition from TiEcon. By bringing the compute to the data, rather than the other way around, our Aussie company has done ground-breaking work in the banking, telecommunications and research sectors and will soon be opening more offices in the United States, Asia-Pacific region and the U.K. We’re delighted that TiEcon has identified us as a company to watch.”

Zetaris was also recently announced as a winner of an Ingram Micro Comet award. This follows Mr Samuel being recognised as the Australian Computer Society’s CXO Disruptor of the Year.

​As well as winning the TiE50 award, Mr Samuel was invited last week to audition for Meet The Drapers, a Silicon Valley reality show where prominent VCs, the Draper family, and celebrity judges meet the world's hottest new entrepreneurs and select the top 27. Viewers get to invest in these companies and be part of the next generation of ground-breaking companies.

“TiE50 again attracted high potential start-ups bringing innovation from different parts of the world. Besides the recognition associated with the TiE50 award, this year TiE50 also partnered with Meet the Draper’s, a ground-breaking reality show to give an opportunity to some companies to pitch to the show,” said Mr Kamal Anand, TiE50 Program Chair.
