Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE, the co-founder and CEO of social enterprise Stemettes, is the latest judge to be confirmed for the UK Business Tech Awards later this year.
Imafidon’s involvement in BusinessCloud’s inaugural awards in London brings the total number of judges to 20, including some of the UK’s biggest names in digital and tech.
Imafidon, who was included in our 100 Women Role Models of Tech list, set up Stemettes to inspire girls and young women to get into STEM and address the industry’s lack of diversity.
She co-founded the world’s first tech incubator for teenage girls and at 27 was awarded an MBE for services to young women and STEM.
BusinessCloud is also pleased to welcome House of Coco founder Laura Bartlett (pictured above); GreaterSport director Rob Mukherjee; and Dr David Hardman MBE (pictured below), managing director of Innovation Birmingham to the line-up.
BusinessCloud editor Chris Maguire said: “Anne-Marie is one of the UK’s most respected names in digital tech and her contribution to the industry has been nothing short of inspirational.
“It’s an honour to have her join our now 20-strong line-up of fantastic judges.”
The UK Business Tech Awards will take place on November 20th at the prestigious Montcalm Marble Arch Hotel in London with a total of 19 gongs up for grabs and will recognise the cream of the UK’s tech sector and will celebrate both companies and individuals.
Categories include FinTech Innovator of the Year, Best Use of Innovation, Tech Company of the Year and Entrepreneur of the Year.
Nominations will be judged in a rigorous two-step process by an independent panel of some of the UK’s leading technology experts.
The entry deadline is September 14th while the final shortlists will be announced on October 12th.
