PrePex™, manufactured by Circ MedTech Ltd., was selected (from over 330 innovations worldwide) as an innovative technology benefitting humanity. The honored award came with a $50,000 cash prize that the company committed to donating to HIV/AIDS prevention activities in Africa.
The Tech Awards - presented by Applied Materials - is a premiere event that celebrates those using technology to solve the world's most pressing problems. The 15th Annual Tech Awards Gala - considered to be “the Oscars of Silicon Valley” - was attended by thousands of guests from the Tech Industry and held on November 12th at the McEnery Convention Center San Jose, California.
Circ MedTech's CEO, Eddy Horowitz, accepted the award on behalf of the company saying: “We are so honored and humbled by this award. I want to thank our partners, the courageous government leaders and NGOs in Africa, our shareholders and last, but not least, the loyal and passionate PrePex™ team. I would like to thank the over one hundred thousand men who have chosen PrePex™. That is why we will be contributing our reward from Sutter Health tonight to their future via HIV prevention activities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Together we can create an AIDS-Free world! ”
