The Techies 2023: Finalists revealed

By Anita Jaynes on 22 September, 2023

We’re excited to announce the finalists of the sixth annual Techies Awards for Swindon & Wiltshire. The judges met just last night (Thursday 21st September) at the Workshed in Swindon to make their final decisions.

This year, we were delighted to have lots of new firms engaging in the award scheme. The Techies have again uncovered some amazing tech talent and tech projects happening locally that would otherwise go unnoticed.

A huge congratulations to all our finalists. The competition was fierce with lots of debate from the judges before our final cut could be announced. 

We can’t wait to shine a light on our finalists through a mix of activities in the coming months.

A huge thank you to Techies Award judges, Ali Hadavizadeh, James Eades, Paddy Bradley, Kat Wellum-Kent, Mirabelle Stobbs, Debby Skellern and Kate Westbrook.

A big thank you to our judges and sponsors for their time and support, we couldn’t put on the awards without them. We all can’t wait to celebrate together and announce the winners on awards night.
