Kaleido is pleased to announce that Founder & CEO Steve Cerveny has been recognized by the Triangle Business Journal with its 40 Under 40 Leadership Award. Cerveny, along with the other winners, was honored for his outstanding achievements and contributions to Kaleido and the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, North Carolina, communities.

The honor recognizes outstanding professionals under the age of 40 for their contributions to their organization and the community. This year's class was selected from a pool of about 200 nominations.

"These winners reflect the entrepreneurial spirit and the economic prowess of the diverse community in which we live and work," said TBJ Publisher Jason Christie. "The Triangle is a better place because of the efforts of these honorees.  I'm proud to know that the future of this area is in such good hands.

As CEO, Cerveny’s leadership has helped to bring the epicenter of blockchain innovation to Raleigh, where Kaleido’s team with diverse global backgrounds build the industry’s leading enterprise blockchain SaaS platform.

Cerveny has shared the innovation coming out of the Triangle’s blockchain ecosystem - on stages both live and virtual - to global CEOs of leading enterprise blockchain consortiums, and has brought directors of global innovation communities to the Triangle to facilitate learning & collaboration.

Cerveny has over fifteen years of experience in emerging technologies, building, launching, and growing enterprise products in a variety of business and technical roles at IBM and as an entrepreneur.  He has a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Computer Engineering from Case Western and an MBA degree from Duke University.

In his personal life, Cerveny is an active host and supporter of the African Children’s Choir, a program of touring African children who perform to raise money and awareness for a network of orphanages in Africa, is an active member of the Duke academic community, and part of Springboard Enterprises, dedicated to accelerating the growth of entrepreneurial tech companies led by women.

Finalists for the Triangle Business Journal's 40 Under 40 Leadership Awards were chosen by six judges from a candidate pool of more than 200 qualified nominees. Cerveny and the other award winners will be recognized in a virtual award ceremony. See the full list of 2020 40 Under 40 Leadership Awards here

We are thrilled that one of our own has been selected for this honor.

Congratulations Steve!
