#OnetoWatch finalists are in good company at the Cambridge Independent Science & Technology Awards 2019

Cambridge Independent have announced the finalists in the Science and Technology Awards 2019 and we are delighted to be supporting the #SciTechAwards once again this year.

The 2018 awards introduced the cofinitive sponsored The One to Watch category, which seeks to identify the people, companies and technologies that are setting the standards in innovation and entrepreneurship. This category formed part of our broader #OnetoWatch campaign as we sought to find the Top 21.

What we have found really exciting is just how many of our #OnetoWatch long list have made the #SciTechAwards finalists list in this latest announcement. Congratulations to Avacta Group, Cambridge Epigenetix, Cambridge LaunchPad, Camnexus, Congenica, COGZ, CorrosionRADAR, Featurespace, Frontier Developments, Healx, Herdsy, IntelliSense.io, KisanHub, Microbiotica, Okra Technologies, Owlstone Medical, Phoremost, Smartbell.io (CEO Veena Adityan made our people list), Spark, and Storm Therapeutics.

A special well done goes to those finalists that also made it all the way to being in our aware winning Top.21 – BIOS, Chiraz Ennaceur, Mursla, Satavia and Sorex Sensors.

In fact almost 40% of the #SciTech finalists were on our #OnetoWatch list. Impressive! So now let’s celebrate the finalists of the Cofinitive sponsored The One To Watch category:
