Leif Kavan Radford - Data and Tech Recruitment Director at The Candidate

Prolific North is delighted to host ‘Tech Companies to Watch’, a brand new event designed to celebrate and recognise the innovative start-up tech companies across the North.

Sponsored by marketing and technology recruitment consultancy The Candidate, the event will take place on November 10th at Colony Jactin House in Manchester with a number of industry expert speakers to be revealed soon.

We will also be launching a brand new ‘Tech 25 Ones to Watch’ list, which will showcase the ambitious early-stage tech companies that we think should be on everyone’s radar.


Recognising how the North has become a magnet for investment with a supportive tech ecosystem, the event will be an unmissable opportunity to hear insights and network with an influential mix of tech innovators and industry leaders.

Leif Radford, Data and Recruitment Director at the Candidate (pictured), who will be speaking on the panel session said: ’We are delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Tech 25 Ones to Watch list. This list, compiled independently, celebrates tech start-ups who are set to thrive in the region.

“The Tech Nation 2020 report stated that the UK tech start-up and scaleup ecosystem was valued at $585bn, which was contributed significantly to by the tech infrastructure in the North West. 

“The Candidate have been supportive of start-up and SMEs in its 10 years trading, helping them grow their teams with talent whilst also expanding alongside them. I’m honoured to be sitting on the panel compiling and celebrating those on this year’s list.’’

The event is shaping up to be an unrivaled networking opportunity for anyone involved in the North’s thriving tech scene, make sure you sign up to attend here.
