Nic Brisbourne, Managing Partner at Forward Partners, the UK’s leading early stage investor in startups, comments:
“The UK is incredibly fortunate to house such a vibrant, talented startup community made up of many trailblazing businesses. I’m looking forward to judging the 2016 Startups Awards and to the opportunity to formally recognise the most inspirational, disruptive and innovative of these enterprises. It’s important to celebrate our most talented entrepreneurs and the UK’s position as a truly world-class hub for tech startups.”
