Shaw & Co are delighted to be supporting The Techies 2020, Swindon & Wiltshire’s annual IT and Technology Awards. Now in its third year, the Techies celebrates the region’s most exciting tech firms, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Shaw & Co are sponsoring the ‘Most Innovative Tech Solution’ category. This award will be presented to the business or individual who can demonstrate the most innovative use of technology to solve a problem. This could range from anything such as chat bots to revolutionise customer experience, or technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) to connect customers in a more immersive way.

Shaw & Co founder Jim Shaw is on the judging panel which is made up of some of the region’s most influential tech entrepreneurs and business growth partners. Speaking about this year’s event, Shaw commented: “I am passionate about supporting the region’s growth ecosystem and The Techies will be a true celebration of the innovation and entrepreneurialism of the Swindon & Wiltshire tech community.

Shaw continued: “I am really looking forward to presenting the award for this category and can’t wait to meet some of the region’s best and most exciting scaleups.” Previous winners of the category include Kids Covered (2019) and OJO Solutions (2018).

This year’s event will be hosted at the Pattern Church in Swindon on Thursday 21st May 2020 with an estimated 350 guests. Techies Director, Anita Jaynes, said: “It’s fitting to host the Techies awards in a venue associated with Brunel’s designs and innovation that revolutionised our past as we celebrate people and firm’s that are shaping our future.”
