Who will win?
Our judges decide on the overall winner from the shortlist of five companies you can see above. The winner is announced on 8 November at the Smarta 100 Awards Ceremony.
The tech scene in the UK is growing and expanding all the time as more people come up with brilliant ways to deliver new products and services. For the special award for the best use of technology, our judges will be looking for the business that is the most technologically advanced, but also the one that is most likely to make a significant return on any investment.
Last year saw the clever idea of MyParcelDelivery take the top spot in the tech category. Providng a single detsination for managing parcel delivery as well as offering substantial savings on exisiting services, entrepreneurs Paul Haydock and David Grimes had also linked up with strategic partners to allow the technology to thrive and grow the business.
