Back in 2019, we devised a list of 50 Top Innovators, the most influential entrepreneurs, technologists and creators causing welcomed disruption in the South West’s tech scene. As lots has changed between now and then, we decided it’s time for an update. 

Thanks to our partnership with Antidote Communications, we’ve been able to celebrate the individuals who have had a rippling impact on our community – not just in economic terms, in the ways they facilitate collaboration and personal growth throughout the region too.

You’ll have to wait a little longer to find out who made the 50 Top Innovators , but first we wanted to give a shoutout to the fantastic innovators who made the longlist. So first up is the Top 100-76 individuals who deserve the recognition for their impactful contribution to our tech cluster – in alphabetical order.
