On Saturday night, the Hilton Anatole Dallas welcomed the greatest entrepreneurs of the Southwest at a special gala event for the EY Entrepreneurs of the Year® 2016. This awards program recognizes those who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
At Dialexa, the product innovation firm, we are proud to announce that Co-Founders Scott Harper (CEO) and Mark Haidar (Chairman) have been awarded the EY Emerging Technology Entrepreneurs Of The Year® 2016 Southwest Award.
Scott and Mark co-founded Dialexa in 2010 with the intent of putting the power of innovation into the hands of any organization. Today, we are in the business of solving our clients hardest problems through user-centric design and engineering.
Succeeding in a tough startup market, Scott and Mark have grown Dialexa through completing over 50 major projects for some of the largest companies in the world and tripling our annual revenue each year. In addition Scott and Mark have launched two subsequent companies disrupting their respective sectors - Vinli and Robin - as part of Dialexa Labs, our internal innovation and development engine that continues to cultivate business ideas and establish new companies.
“We are blown away by the recognition of our work, and are truly honored to receive this award by EY on behalf of the entire team,“ said Scott Harper, “When we co-founded Dialexa, our vision was to make a company that could bring engineering, design, and purpose together into the delicate balance that creates world-class tech products.”

To make this a reality, we surrounded ourselves with the most talented people in tech. This award goes to all of our team members, all of whom push the boundaries and make it all happen."
