South East Tech 50: Vote now for region’s most innovative firm

The day has arrived to cast your vote for the East of England’s most exciting technology company – welcome to South East Tech 50.

After sifting through nominations and carrying out our own research, we have compiled a shortlist of 114 disruptive companies who are using tech in innovative ways.

We have assembled a panel of judges who will each choose their top 15 companies. They are:

  • Elizabeth Corse, entrepreneur engagement manager (South East), Tech Nation
  • Tom Fox, tech growth lead, KPMG
  • Sam Peers, business development manager, Blake Morgan LLP
  • Jonathan Symcox, editor, BusinessCloud

For the next two weeks we are running a voting process for the general public. You have 11pm on Wednesday 4th March to vote.

The final 50 ranking, which will be published on Monday March 16th, will be decided by a combination of the judges’ rankings and public vote. Subscribe to our newsletter to be among the first to see the results.

We have included the names of the companies, where they are based and a short description of what they do.

Businesses must be harnessing tech in a disruptive way and be able to demonstrate that. They may also have evidence of:

  • high/fast-growing turnover
  • workforce growth
  • investment/high-profile backers

They are all tech-first organisations. We have not included large companies in other sectors with internal R&D departments, eCommerce retailers or technology infrastructure businesses such as telecoms. Agencies must be developing bespoke innovative solutions using the latest technologies.
