We are delighted to have made the 2021 Northern Tech Awards Top 100 shortlist, recognising the fastest growing technology companies in the North of England, Scotland and Ireland.
For the eighth consecutive year, GP Bullhound is spotlighting the Northern tech ecosystem, recognising the innovative companies on the frontline of the region’s success.
Software and Digital Services emerge as the dominant sectors in the list, accounting for 73% of the Top 100 companies, an increase from 67% in 2020. This trend is particularly pertinent in the North West, with representation rising from 57% in 2020 to 75% in 2021.
“From the North East to Manchester and Leeds on either side of the Pennines — the North has now cemented its position as a major player on the UK tech scene. It is fantastic to see our Northern region thriving, as a result of the pool of fantastic talent, investment and ambition across the region. It is home to some of the most thriving tech hubs in the UK and must not be neglected — it will be a crucial cog in the engine for the UK’s post-pandemic recovery. This is why it is so important that we continue to recognise, invest and celebrate the ecosystem.” — Hugh Campbell, Managing Partner at GP Bullhound
The Northern Tech Awards winners and the final ranking of the Top 100 fastest growing companies will be revealed and celebrated at an exclusive award ceremony on 9 November 2021 at Leeds’ New Dock Hall — attended by entrepreneurs, CEOs and business leaders at the forefront of the region’s digital economy.
