We are delighted to tell you that digi.me has been named as one of the 50 most innovative digital companies in the 2017 ‘Digital Innovators’ Power List’
Launched today by international law firm Bird & Bird LLP and London-based news brand, City A.M., the Digital Innovators Power List identifies the freshest and most inspiring digital companies that are impacting the market as a “life changer” or “market transformer”.
Companies were selected for the shortlist based on those with the most captivating stories of innovation that are also creating a buzz in the media. They also had to be at growth stage, have secured institutional funding and be based in or around London.
Julian Ranger, digi.me’s Founder and Executive chairman, said: “Digi.me is very pleased to be recognised as a Digital Innovator – we certainly believe that our solution of returning ownership and control of the data to the individual will stimulate a huge wave of innovation using personal data enabling businesses to offer ever more personalised services, privately.”
The shortlist was agreed by City A.M., Bird & Bird and supporting partners tech PR agency Hotwire PR, UK technology trade association techUK, the UK’s premier business organisation CBI and online investment platform Crowdcube.
With the help of a judging panel of digital experts, the top 50 will be whittled down between now and September 2018 until an overall winner is identified for the “life changer” and “market transformer” categories, winning them professional support to take their business to the next level.
Nicholas Perry, Partner and Head of London, Bird & Bird, said: “London’s position on the global stage has never been more important and it continues to be the home of some of the world’s most pioneering digital companies.
“This year’s Digital Innovators Power List celebrates some of the most visionary digital companies in the city and will explore the many ways in which technology is transforming the world. Alongside City A.M. and our partners, we are thrilled to recognise these growth-stage companies and provide a network of like-minded individuals who can stimulate, create and foster innovation.”
Digi.me will participate in a series of events hosted at Bird & Bird over the course of the year where the judges, featuring representatives from the London digital space, will give their perspectives on the factors driving digital innovation in the City, how their creations are impacting everyday lives or markets and what they are looking for when it comes to choosing the final two digital innovators.
