We’re proud to announce that we have been nominated as the most innovative technology company in the Yorkshire & Humberside region for 2020, by BusinessCloud. Over 120 companies from across the region were shortlisted and faced a public vote along with an expert judging panel to arrive at a top 50.
The judging panel comprised of:
- Jem Henderson, entrepreneur engagement manager (Yorkshire), Tech Nation
- Stuart Clarke, director, Leeds Digital Festival
- Antonio Tombanane, founder, Tech Expo Humber
- Laura Harper, partner, Irwin Mitchell
- Jonathan Symcox, editor, BusinessCloud
Sarah Fatchett, CEO & Founder, 365 Response shared, “We’re absolutely delighted to have been crowned the region’s most innovative technology company. Covid-19 has been a global battle, but we have adapted and used our expertise and technology to provide further support to the frontline, where it is needed most.
“Our solutions have been used to ensure the safe and secure transport of critically ill patients to places of care throughout the pandemic, and our 365 Smart Platform has facilitated vital support to children with special educational needs to get to and from school safely, as well as ensuring community lifelines such as food deliveries, Covid-19 testing kits and getting those who need assistance, to and from hospital and care appointments.
“We’re proud to support our NHS and Local Authorities and we’re grateful to have been recognised for our innovation and dedication in the Yorkshire & Humberside Tech 50.”
Over 2,000 votes were cast and many notable companies from the area were included. Second in the ranking was Synap, a business that is transforming the way that students around the world prepare for and take their exams. Leeds accounted for almost half of the top 50 companies, followed by 11 from Sheffield, 6 from Hull, 4 from Barnsley and with only two representing Wakefield and York.
Jonathan Symcox, Editor at BusinessCloud shared, “Our Tech 50 rankings shine a light on the incredible technology being created within each UK region – and Yorkshire & Humberside is a true hotbed of innovation.
“365 Response is a worthy winner of this year’s Yorkshire & Humberside Tech 50 ranking and a great example of a company using technology to help improve people’s lives.
“The ranking is decided by a combination of our readers and a respected independent judging panel. To be crowned No.1 you have to impress both – and 365 have certainly done that.”
