Rose Ross, Chief Trailblazer and Founder of The Tech Trailblazers Awards said; “2023's Tech Trailblazers Awards has uncovered another treasure trove of entrepreneurial talent. I am always delighted to see new names appearing, but also happy to see a winner from last year come back and win again. Congratulations to all of our 2023 Tech Trailblazers!

“With our 12th edition it's been important to not just look at the technology, but also the ecosystem as a whole. The Female and Male CxO categories continue to be popular, to recognise these trailblazing individuals as vitally important to the startup community. Environmental issues also continue to inspire firms entering the Sustainable Tech category.

Our winners and runners up can now benefit from the exposure and credibility that an award from industry judges can bring. We will certainly be keeping an eye on their future endeavours and look forward to featuring our winners in the #FoundersonFire podcast over the coming months.”

The Tech Trailblazers Awards will be back in June 2024. For more information, please visit:
