More than 100 companies have been shortlisted for potential inclusion in the Midlands Tech 50 innovation ranking for 2020.  

Alongside a panel of independent judges, your votes will determine the 50 firms based in the region which are creating the most innovative new tech for consumers, business and society at large.  

Reader voting begins today and will run for seven days, ending at 23:59 on Sunday 13th September.
