The competition is now on for the 4th annual Techies Awards for Swindon and Wiltshire, launching today Monday 7th June 2021.
If you’re doing exciting things with tech we want to hear from you.
- Have you launched a business or service which is making a difference to its users and the wider community?
- Has the pandemic acted as a catalyst for you to use tech to transform business / ways of working to revolutionise your business or a client’s?
- Has your tech support stepped up a gear?
- Have you launched a start-up business with tech at its core?
- Are you working with cutting edge technologies?
- Are you using data to empower business and/or society?
- Have you worked successfully as a team throughout the pandemic, supporting one another and smashing your targets?
- Have you been working nationally or internationally flying the flag for our area?
- Do you have a future tech superstar in the building? Perhaps an apprentice, or an employee who’s under 25 and is showing a clear passion and dedication to the business and the sector.
If you have answered YES to any of the above questions there is a category for you to enter.
The pandemic has made us all think harder about our business offering, diversifying to survive, developing new products and services and entering new markets. The Techies is an initiative designed by The Business Exchange to celebrate your innovation and entrepreneurship and showcase your work to the wider community. The Awards scheme also provides the opportunity for you to connect with like-minded businesses and individuals, creating new relationships and opportunities.
The Techies wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic sponsors and supporters. A huge thank you to our headline sponsor, the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership and category sponsors, All Boxed, Elm Workspace, MHA Monahans, Ntegra, SETSquared and Thrings.
The Techies is brand built on The Business Exchange’s ethos of creating a community with a shared goal, to make our economy thrive and all of our sponsors and judges are passionate about working together to achieve this goal.
