Very is proud to announce that we were named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Consumer Electronics category in The 18th Annual American Business Awards® today.

About the Award

Honoring organizations of all types and sizes and the people behind them, the Stevies recognize outstanding performances in the workplace worldwide.


Very won the award for our work with Koller Products to design and build Smart Tank, the first internet-connected desktop aquarium on the consumer market, and a cross-platform mobile application.

“Novel use of technology,” one judge remarked on the project. “[Very has a] great partnership model to accelerate time to market.”

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“Despite the toughest business conditions in memory, American organizations continue to demonstrate their commitment to innovation, creativity, and bottom-line results,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.  “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations are full of inspiring stories of persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and compassion.”

“We’re honored to receive this award, and even more honored to get to work on innovative products with great clients like Koller Products,” said Ben Wald, founder and head of client strategy at Very. “We know from experience that IoT can transform a pivotal moment into a competitive advantage.”
