The live final of the Bird & Bird Digital Innovators awards takes part on the evening of Thursday, May 10 – and we’re pitching to win!
Digi.me is up against Billmonitor and Cera in the Life Changer category, and Andrew Carmody, our Chief Strategy Officer, is in the hotseat, tasked with persuading the digital experts and supporting partners making up the judging panel that we are the most deserving company. (Obviously, we think we are!)
We were initially picked as one of the top 50 Digital Innovators for Bird & Bird’s Power List back in October last year. The list was designed to identify 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 were 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.
A public vote whittled down that group to a top ten and then to a top six after a panel session where each company answered questions about their highs and lows, and future plans. Digi.me made it through each time – and now we’re at the last hurdle!
We’re obviously very excited about making the final – and you can be sure we’ll keep you updated on our progress on the 10th! Stay tuned!
