Be the #OneToWatch

Showcasing the people, companies and ‘things’ on the cutting-edge of innovation and entrepreneurship in Cambridgeshire & across the East of England.

Will you be on the #OneToWatch 2019/20 listing?


Cambridgeshire people, companies, and the ‘things’ that they create are setting the standards in innovation and entrepreneurship across the globe. We like to showcase and highlight the lesser-known of these through our #OneToWatch campaign, recognising those exciting new entries across all market sectors, and celebrating the very best work going on today in the region. With such diversity and ingenuity amongst our #OnetoWatch cohort, the attributes we will be searching for are Innovation, Challenge, Influence, Viability and Memorability.

As we collate the One’s to Watch throughout the year, we pay special attention to each one in order to determine the Top 21 which will be announced each year in early March.

We are now entering the second year of the campaign after an amazing inaugural year. So if you see a company, person or ‘thing’ tackling a real issue with innovation that will influence their industry, let us know by completing the form below, emailing us at or joing the conversation on twitter @Cofinitive #OnetoWatch.
