“Our Awards, in the 30th anniversary year of the EIS, are of special significance and the high quality of this year’s entries reflects the exceptional work of our members. We have some incredible winners across 12 categories who deserve recognition for their excellent work, and I extend my congratulations to them all.”

The winners were selected by a distinguished panel of independent judges, who assessed candidates in a number of areas including on impact, innovation and contributions to the EIS and SEIS community. The EIS and SEIS are instrumental in promoting innovation and supporting the growth of early-stage companies in the UK, as the nominees proved. The Awards were a testament to the remarkable talent and tremendous achievement within the UK startup community.
