We're delighted to reveal the shortlist for the inaugural Prolific North Tech Awards 2019.

A panel of industry leaders and experts determined the shortlist in the 21 categories after a rigorous judging session held in Manchester yesterday.

The awards are designed to celebrate and reward the very best tech companies, applications, deals, advisors and entrepreneurs from across the North.

The final winners will be announced at a gala dinner and awards ceremony at Manchester's Midland Hotel on Wednesday, May 8th. 

The Prolific North Tech Awards will run alongside the Tech Show North expo on May 8th and 9th at EventCity in Manchester, with more than 300 guests coming together to celebrate the success of their peers, colleagues and clients. A three-course dinner will be served and there will be a complimentary drinks reception.

Special thanks to our category sponsors Knight Corporate Finance, Brabners and KM Capital.
