Reaching for the stars with #SciTechAwards

We are thrilled to share that we will be sponsoring the Cambridge Independent “Ones to Watch” award again for 2019.  

The award is a fundamental part of our own #OnetoWatch campaign that formally starts the submission process for our own Top 21*.  

Last year’s winner was medtech start-up Kalium Diagnostics, which uses blood potassium to help patients and reduce total healthcare costs. Since winning, Kalium Diagnostics have gone on to the Cambridge finale of ImagineIF and have also been invited to present at the Global ImagineIF final which takes place next month. 

Our aim is to identify the first raft of Cambridge-based #OnetoWatch people, companies and ‘things’ that are already doing great things, or are just about to start – but each with the potential to go on and shape the future. One to Watch gives start-ups and established organisations alike the chance to take centre stage in the region’s science and technology spotlight for something that is, or could become cutting-edge. 

Since last year’s #SciTechAwards Cofinitive curated a list of 219 companies across the broader East of England region. This culminated in the announcement of the Top 21 in each of these categories at the inaugural event in March 2019. 

Faye Holland, founder of Cofinitive, said: “Last year’s Science & Technology Awards saw the launch of The Ones to Watch category, which was part of Cofinitive’s own regional Top.21 #OnetoWatch campaignThis award seeks to identify the next raft of individuals, companies and technologies that are setting the standards in innovation and entrepreneurship. We’re looking for the trailblazers, who are pushing the boundaries of possibility and shaping the future. We’re excited to be leading this award again in 2019 and can’t wait to see the submissions.”
