The Northern Tech Awards 2017
GP Bullhound, the European technology investment bank, has called on the North’s best tech companies to come forward for the Northern Tech Awards and be part of the region’s first Northern Tech 100 League Table. GP Bullhound partnered with Tech North, the government backed tech sector initiative, to jointly find, recognise and celebrate the region’s biggest tech success stories.
Hugh Campbell, the Managing Partner of GP Bullhound, commented: “The growth of the Northern digital economy continues to accelerate, contributing over £18 billion to the region’s productivity. Digital businesses across the North are having a sizeable impact on the immediate growth and future prosperity of the national economy.”
“This year’s awards will champion the businesses and entrepreneurs driving growth, fueling innovation, and shaping the future of the Northern economy. Newcastle, home to Sage, the only software business in the FTSE 100, and a thriving hub for start-ups and scale-ups provides the ideal platform to showcase this excellence.”

We couldn’t have done this without the Connexin team and our customers. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to them all.
