Techies – It’s your last chance

By Anita Jaynes on 10 August, 2020

Tech-first firms in Swindon and Wiltshire have one last chance to enter the Techies Awards 2020 before the competition closes on Tuesday 1st September.

The Business Exchange award scheme celebrates the innovation and entrepreneurship of our local tech community and puts the spotlight on tech firms and those embracing technology in our area.

Past winners include Appsbroker, Cardwave, Foregenix, Gel Studios, Infinity Nation, OJO Solutions, Render, and Purple Lime accountants.

There are 12 categories to enter including Driven by Data and Most Innovative Tech Solution. The pandemic has forced us all to look at our operations to innovate to survive and you might have just come up with a solution that could win the Techies 2020!

The date for the Techies Awards 2020 award ceremony will be announced at the end of September. We are waiting to see how Covid-19 restrictions pan out before we announce our new plans. We would love to host an in-person event rather than hosting this year’s awards purely online, and if we can hold the event in a physical venue as planned, we will ensure that the awards are also broadcast online for anyone who doesn’t feel safe attending a mass participation event.
