The shortlist for the UK tech awards has been announced by the judging panel, recognising the efforts of the flourishing UK tech industry.

They reflect the contribution of both public and private fast-growing and innovative home-grown tech companies.

The UK’s tech sector continues to thrive, with private companies in particular blazing a trail for innovation, growth and creating shareholder value. We are also seeing growth in the number of companies employing new technologies to provide differentiated services to their consumers in the digital world.”
