Search is on for Yorkshire’s Top Tech 2019

Mills & Reeve is once again celebrating the Yorkshire tech scene with the launch of Top Tech: Yorkshire, the annual report that celebrates the region's cutting-edge companies.

Top Tech: Yorkshire is open to companies which have developed world-leading technology, are disrupting markets across all industries and whose technology and services are helping others become leaders in their fields across the region.

We are looking for companies across all sub-sectors including Healthtech and Medtech, whose innovations are transforming the delivery of healthcare and the health and wellbeing of patients, and in education where EdTech businesses are improving the performance of our educational institutions, teachers and students.

Our judges also want to hear from companies in the FinTech sector where technological advancements are revolutionising the delivery of financial services; in Agritech where technology is being used to solve problems in agriculture, farming, food production and distribution, or PropTech companies who are changing the face of the real estate sector in the ever-evolving digital landscape.

Organisations will be judged on technological innovation, leadership, growth and financial performance, client service and delivery and employee engagement.

The judging panel is made up of people who live and breathe the technology sector, and includes

  • Richard Faulkner, managing director, technology banking at Silicon Valley Bank.
  • Chelsea Boothroyd, engagement manager, Nexus
  • Richard Carter, managing director, Equiniti Credit Services
  • Paul Johnson, partner in the corporate team at the Leeds office of Mills & Reeve
  • Peter Rowe, consultant, WH Ireland

Paul Johnson, Partner at Mills & Reeve said: “We launched the Top Tech last year and were delighted with the large number of entries from high-calibre companies whose technology has helped catapult Yorkshire’s reputation as a technology hub and hotbed of innovation.  

“The technology sector is a major sector focus for Mills & Reeve and, following last year’s success, we decided once again to showcase the region’s pioneering and transformational companies and celebrate their achievements both in the region and on the world stage.”

Chelsea Boothroyd from Nexus also commented: “I’m really excited to be involved with Top Tech: Yorkshire, our region has an incredible amount of talent and is home to an array of innovative, high growth businesses so it’s great to take the time to recognise and celebrate them.”

Entries will close on 4 October 2019. The companies who made it into the report will be revealed at the launch event on November in Leeds and available to download from
