Leeds city region's top 100 digital tech innovators announced
One hundred of the most “digitally transformational, resilient and innovative businesses” in the Leeds City Region have been recognised in this year’s Digital Enterprise TOP 100 report, which has been announced today following a competitive nominations process.
SMEs from across nine Leeds City Region local authority areas (Leeds, Kirklees, York, Harrogate, Craven, Calderdale, Bradford, Selby and Wakefield) feature in the TOP 100, which can now be viewed online.
The businesses included in this year’s index represent a “diverse” range of industries from innovative shed build and design firm Power Sheds; popular Viking-themed visitor attraction The JORVIK Group; digital training and suppliers for drones, Coptrz and car exterior design and modifications company, Maxton Designs.
The index also highlights ten ‘Leading Lights’ that the judges believe deserve a special mention. One of these companies is Power Sheds, a Bradford based shed manufacturer which has harnessed digital tools to become a multi-million-pound company in little over three years of trading.
Co-Founder and CEO Jack Sutcliffe (pictured left) said: “Our innovative approach to design massively reduced lead times from the 6 to 8-week industry standard which can be a pain point for customers. We can deliver a shed anywhere in the UK next day.”
“It is amazing to be recognised as a Leading Light of the Digital Enterprise TOP 100. The support from the Digital Enterprise has been amazing and has played a key role in making us one of the most exciting UK start-ups going.”
Digital Enterprise programme lead Suzanne Bradbury added: “As a judge on this year’s panel it was great to see so many impressive applications. These 100 diverse and innovative businesses from across the Leeds City Region are shining examples of how digital investment really can help.
“By harnessing new technologies, they have been able to adapt and grow their businesses and overcome many challenges in a consistently evolving business landscape.
“The quality of the entries was so high that it made the judging process quite a challenge! Congratulations to all of the companies that were nominated and we are looking forward to celebrating all the successful entrants at the TOP 100 Celebration Event and beyond.”
