Washington, DC – October 6th, 2016 – This has been a year of numerous awards for Deepak Jain, and his technology firm AiNET. On October 4th, SmartCEO magazine announced Jain as a finalist for its prestigious GovStar ‘Technical Trailblazer’ award. The GovStar Awards program honors government contractors for their technology innovation, workplace environment, growth, veteran support and impact on the industry and marketplace as a whole.

The ‘Technical Trailblazer’ category is warranted for an entrepreneur who has spent the last 23 years innovating in the field of IT services.
