ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Where 2 Get It, Inc., a provider of location-based search technologies, has been honored by AeA as a finalist for Outstanding Private Company in the 15th Annual Orange County High-Tech Innovation Awards. AeA is the largest technology trade association in the United States and annually presents the awards that recognize local companies, individuals and products in the technology field that drive innovation in Orange County.

"Now companies must work harder than ever to stand out from the competition," said Don Hicks, executive director, AeA Orange County/Inland Empire. "The 15th annual High-Tech Innovation Awards recognize those companies, individuals and products that provide outstanding innovation."

The 15th Annual High-Tech Innovation Awards will be presented at the Hyatt Regency Irvine on April 29, 2008.

Prior to the AeA event, Where 2 Get It's founder and CEO Manish Patel will also accept honors at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com's 8th Annual Multicultural Business Conference, taking place April 23 - 25 at Disney's BoardWalk Resort in Orlando, Florida.

DiversityBusiness.com, the nation's leading multicultural Internet site, named Where 2 Get It, Inc. to the Div100 list for Top 100 Small Businesses in California and for Top 100 Diversity Owned Businesses in California.

The companies listed on the Div100 represent the nation's top multicultural earners and challenges the long-held notion that a small business is small or insignificant. Div100 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with small and diversity owned companies.

"To be acknowledged by such prestigious organizations such as AeA and Diversity Business.com is a significant achievement that reflects the dedication and hard work of the entire Where 2 Get It team. I'm extremely proud of this recognition from the technology and business community and look forward to continuing our success," said Patel.
