All thriving Milton Keynes based businesses, academics, designers or techies with innovations and technology-revelations to celebrate are encouraged to apply for Biztech’s BrightSparc and Digital Awards.

The annual ceremony will be held in November as a celebration for the MK and local area’s brightest technological innovations.

This year, the organisers are pleased to announce that this year’s awards will be a bigger ceremony than ever before, with 11 award categories, including the ceremony’s first ever ‘Green Tech’ Award for innovation and digital technology.

As well as this addition, other categories include:
• Students making a difference in tech award
• The NatWest Entrepreneur Accelerator award for start-up wow of the year
• Best new tech for business award
• Best tech teamwork award
• The bottom-line award
• Best mobile app award
• Rising star award for young digital person of the year
• The edtech award
• Best ecommerce award
• Best digital marketing campaign award

Unlike other awards, BrightSparc celebrates everything that makes our city and the surrounding SEMLEP area such a great place for creativity and entrepreneurial spirit; all in the pursuit of finding technology solutions that transform lives.

Milton Keynes is a city born out of new ideas and a vision for future prosperity, making it one of the most exciting technology hotspots in the country.

Fredi Nonyelu, Chairman of Biztech technology forum in Milton Keynes and SEMLEP, explains: “If you’ve had a technology-based idea, with a proven real world application, and you’ve seen it through to the next stages of development in the last two years, then BrightSparc and Digital Awards wants your entry.

“The awards are simple to enter, using our online form, with eleven award categories to choose from, each recognising blue sky thinking and achievement within the MK and SEMLEP region.”

Anyone who would like to find out more about entering, sponsoring or attending this years’ awards, which will be held over lunch at the Natwest Entrepreneur Accelerator Hub in Central Milton Keynes on 22 November 2019, can do so by visiting www.brightsparcawards.co.uk.
