Yorkshire and Humberside tech firms recognised in new list


BusinessCloud is today celebrating Yorkshire and Humberside’s booming digital and technology sector with our latest list of tech stars.

Our inaugural ‘101 Yorkshire and Humberside’ tech list was compiled through nominations, recommendations from industry peers and first-hand research.

It recognises a diverse range of businesses across a variety of sectors – and includes both fledgling start-ups and well-established tech titans including the likes of Leeds-based ‘unicorn’ Sky Betting & Gaming.

BusinessCloud’s latest list comes just a day after Tech Nation announced that the digital tech sector in Leeds is now worth £1 billion to the city’s economy and a few days before we hold a free tech event in Leeds.

Editor Chris Maguire said: “Leeds has already established itself as a fast-growing tech hub and the jewel in Yorkshire’s crown, but we were very impressed with the innovation that came out of other cities like Sheffield, Harrogate and Hull.

“We set out looking for companies doing amazing things with technology – and let’s just say that keeping the list down to 101 was challenging.

“BusinessCloud is a national publication so it’s important to us that we celebrate all that the UK has to offer, and Yorkshire is a huge and often unsung area of talent.

“The list is a mixture of heavyweights and start-ups which are disrupting the tech sector. We’re not saying these are the biggest 101 tech companies in Yorkshire and Humberside but we are saying they’re doing amazing things with tech or  are at the heart of the tech community.

“This is our first list for Yorkshire and Humberside so if you think we’ve missed you out please send us your details for inclusion in future lists.”

The ‘101 Yorkshire and Humberside’ list comes on the back of BusinessCloud publishing its hugely popular lists of 101 FinTech Disrupters, 51 Tech for Good Stars and 51 AI Innovators.
