Entries are now open for the Northern Tech Awards 2019 – recognising the fastest growing companies in the North of England and Scotland.
The annual Northern Tech Awards, hosted by GP Bullhound aims to find, recognise and celebrate the region’s biggest tech success stories, to be unveiled in the annual Northern Tech 100 League Table.
Companies featured will be ranked by revenue growth over the last three years, with the Top 100 invited to receive an award at the invitation-only ceremony on Thursday 28th March 2019 at Manchester’s Albert Hall, in the presence of CEOs, entrepreneurs and business leaders from the region’s Digital Economy.
Hugh Campbell, Managing Partner of GP Bullhound, said: “The North of England and Scotland are home to some of the country’s most innovative, successful and vibrant tech companies. Edinburgh, in particular, has examples of both established scaled businesses, such as Skyscanner and Craneware, as well as a thriving younger ecosystem with businesses such as; TVSquared, FreeAgent and Administrate.
The 2019 Northern Tech Awards celebrate the strength and velocity of tech in this region and identify the next big success story.”
To qualify for entry to the Tech 100, firms must have at least three years of revenue growth with a minimum level of revenue of £500k in 2016. Northern Star entries are invited for early stage companies with revenues below this threshold.
An expert panel of judges will select seven companies worthy of special Judges’ Awards, to be presented at the event. The judges will also select an overall winner from the Region’s Top 10 ‘Northern Stars’ – to recognise the very best early stage technology companies in the North.
The 2019 judging panel includes Founding Editor of WIRED, David Rowan; President of Tech UK Jacqueline de Rojas CBE; Head of M&A at Moneysupermarket Mark Gracey, serial entrepreneur Sherry Coutu CBE and other high-profile members of the tech community.
Previous winners include Skyscanner, Missguided, The Hut Group, MusicMagpie, LADbible, Evolution Funding and The Car Buying Group.
