The world of technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) never stands still. And neither do the businesses within it. But with rapid change comes opportunity.

The annual UK Tech Awards celebrate success, reward achievement and raise the profile of the UK tech community and we are proud to sponsor them again this year. The tech community epitomises the entrepreneurial spirit and innovation that is vital for our economy.
The UK tech awards reflect the contribution all companies make to the industry, from privately owned start-ups through to large publicly quoted companies, as well as celebrating the investors, executives and board members who guide these businesses to success.
This year’s awards shortlist has just been announced and I’m particularly excited about the Tech Deal of the Year award category, which spans growth capital investment into pioneering new technologies, through to major quoted company landmark IPO and M&A transactions. We give our congratulations to the following:
Tech Deal of the Year shortlist
As my colleague Nick George said in his recent blog looking at TMT deal trends in the first half of 2017, investors and acquirers are still hungry for the sector in general, and transformative industry-shaping platforms or innovative fundamental technologies in particular. The UK is particularly developing a leading role in so-called “deep-tech”: emerging technologies around AI, VR/AR, simulation and cyber-security. International acquirers and investors from all over the world have been attracted to UK pioneers in these nascent and high-potential areas.
