Northern Tech Awards 2021

Celebrating Technology in the North of UK.

The 2021 Northern Tech Awards will be held on 9 November 2021 at the New Dock Hall, Royal Armouries in Leeds, UK.

At the heart of tech

Once a year the Northern Tech Awards shine a light upon the technology ecosystem in the North of the UK, celebrating innovative technologies and leading businesses developed in the region and recognise those who have contributed to their success.

Compiled by GP Bullhound, the Northern Tech Awards 100 League Table ranks the fastest growing Technology Companies in the North of England and Scotland. The top 100 and the Top 15 Northern Stars are invited to the Northern Tech Awards ceremony to receive an award.

The event is invitation-only, attended by CEOs, entrepreneurs and business leaders in the Digital Economy and provides a fantastic networking opportunity for like-minded entrepreneurs to make contact and exchange ideas. Northern Tech Awards is run as a not-for-profit event financed by GP Bullhound and a small group of sponsors who want to support entrepreneurship across the North.

This year's award ceremony will be held on 9 November 2021 in Leeds, UK.

This year's charity

Northern Tech Awareds supports Ada, the National College of Digital Skills in its mission is to educate and empower the next generation of diverse digital talent. 

The digital industry is experiencing epic growth but there is a talent shortage. Over 130,000 tech jobs are available each year in the UK but students are leaving education without sufficient knowledge and experience to get the job.

With Ada, students can learn relevant digital skills to pursue their dream job in tech. We are a unique community which puts computer programming at the heart of everything we do. Our students are the future game changers: challenging the norm, excited by change, and resilient in the face of adversity. Everyone, from any background, is entitled to a quality education and a better future. Our community is united by digital so we work closely with Haringey Council and the local community to ensure the inclusion extends beyond the walls of Ada.
