Shaw & Co are delighted to be supporting The SPARKies 2020, the South West’s annual tech and digital awards. Now in its eighth year, and hosted by TechSPARK, the SPARKies shines a light on the very best people, products and companies that make up the tech sector in Bristol, Bath and the broader West of England region.

Shaw & Co are sponsoring the ‘Best Scale Up’ category. This award will be presented to the business with over 10 people or a turnover of over £1million that has demonstrated the most impressive growth. This year’s shortlisted finalists are Amdaris, LettUs Grow, Loqbox and Seccl. Previous winners of the category include Techmodal (2019) and Immersive Labs (2018).

Speaking about this year’s awards, Shaw & Co founder Jim Shaw commented: “The SPARKies will be a true celebration of the innovation and entrepreneurialism held within the South West tech cluster. Whilst this year has been challenging for so many businesses, being able to significantly grow despite changing market conditions takes an incredible amount of bravery and ambition. I am really looking forward to presenting this award and can’t wait to meet some of the region’s most impressive Scale Up businesses.”

Due to Covid-19, this year’s event will be hosted online on Thursday 10th December 2020 from Bristol-based Pytch’s state-of-the-art ‘Virtual Venue’. TechSPARK Managing Director, Ben Shorrock, said: “Now, more than ever, it’s important we come together as a community to recognise and celebrate the work that tech companies across the region are doing, Across our ecosystem people are developing technology that is having a positive impact and shining a light on that is something we absolutely should be doing.”
