The SETsquared Exeter team enjoyed a fantastic evening at the Tech South West Awards on Thursday the 10th of November, as they joined the company of over 300 representatives from the South West tech community to acknowledge its success.
Celebrating in style under the wings of Concorde at Aerospace Bristol, you couldn’t ask for a better setting to recognise the achievements of those shortlisted and the winners on the night.
With 25 categories, from Health Tech, to Committed to Diversity, this really was a chance to expose the commitment and dedication present in our industries.
SETsquared Exeter ourselves were shortlisted for the Supporting the Sector award, along with our sister organisation SETsquared Bristol. We were also delighted to see some of our other partners, alumni, network, and friends such as EPIC, Luminous Show Technology, Andy Doyle, Kris Sum, digiLab and more up for awards.
Special mention too, for our former Entrepreneur in Residence, Caitlin Gould for her bumper win on the night. Taking home three awards for her hard work and amazing results in the spheres of education and diversity.
Our Technology Manager, Colin Dart got up on to stage to announce the winner of the SETsquared Exeter sponsored, Best Startup award. With Propflo collecting the well-deserved reward.
A hotly contested category, showing just how rich and deep the talent in the South West is.
Many thanks have to go out to Tech South West for their hard working team in bringing the community together.
Opportunities to meet so many amazing people in one space are few and far between, but incredibly important in showcasing the results of such great work and to enthuse everyone for the coming year.
