“The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons will host the third annual Techfellow Awards on Feb. 22.

Presented by Founders Fund, TechCrunch and NEA, the TechFellow Awards provides up-and-coming technology innovators with $100,000 to build and invest in the next generation of startups.

“The TechFellow Awards recognize the technology community’s brightest stars and welcome them into a peer group that will expand their potential and reach,” said Sean Parker, Executive General Partner at Founders Fund. “We’re shining a spotlight on individuals who are on the cusp of bringing us something revolutionary, while giving them the opportunity to identify and invest in the most exciting startups in the industry.”

Parker is among several notable tech moguls on this year’s selection committee, which also includes Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
