The Techies Awards return for 2023

By Anita Jaynes on 4 April, 2023

The Business Exchange is delighted to announce that the Techies Awards Swindon & Wiltshire are back for 2023. The award scheme which is now in its sixth year is opening for entries on Monday 24th April.

The Techies celebrate the amazing tech innovation happening on our doorstep and shine a light on organisations, projects and individuals undertaking outstanding work in their fields.

The award scheme is open to all businesses based in Swindon and Wiltshire doing exciting things with tech. 

There are 13 categories to choose from with one new category this year – Wiltshire’s Leading Woman in Tech. We decided to add this award into the mix as the industry continues to struggle to close the gender gap. According to a recent report by government funded growth network Tech Nation, nearly three million people, or 9% of the UK workforce, are employed in the UK tech industry. Just 26% of those in the tech workforce are women. We want to inspire the next and put the spotlight on the women in our community doing great things. 

THE AWARD CATEGORIES ARE:

  • Flying the Flag for Swindon & Wilts Tech
  • Best Tech Support Service
  • Future Tech Superstar
  • Social Impact Award
  • Best Tech Security
  • Best Tech Start-up
  • Most Innovative Tech Solution
  • Best User Experience
  • Using Tech to Transform Business
  • Driven by Data
  • Tech Team of the Year
  • Outstanding Contribution to Swindon & Wiltshire Tech
  • NEW Wiltshire’s Leading Woman in Tech

HOW TO ENTER…

The awards are only open to organisations based in Swindon and Wiltshire. Read the full competition rules and eligibility online by visiting the entry section of the website.

ENTRIES CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT ON THURSDAY 7TH SEPTEMBER 2023
