Best in Biz is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts, and more than 400 entries were submitted for the 2012 awards.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized by the Best in Biz Awards,” said Agawi CEO and co-founder Rajat Gupta. “Agawi has a small, but growing, dedicated team putting in a lot of hours, and it’s really starting to pay off.
