Now in its second year, the BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards celebrates and champions the entrepreneurial journeys of those who create, disrupt and innovate within the UK’s rapidly changing tech landscape.

Technological advancements are dominating and transforming the world that we live in; changing how we think, behave, do business, learn and go about our day-to-day lives. It simplifies processes, creates networks and enables us to live and work more efficiently.

Founder of the BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards, Francesca James, believes that with greater productivity than other industries, faster job creation and ever-growing levels of investment, the tech industry is rapidly becoming, if it’s not already, one the most vital components of the UK’s economy.

Behind every great tech business is a great entrepreneur, and behind them is an inspiring story. These are the people who create, disrupt and innovate. That’s what we’re looking to celebrate and champion with the BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards.

The BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards is brought to you by the organisers of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, which acknowledges the hard work and inspiring stories of British entrepreneurs and businesses in Great Britain. Now in its seventh year, the Awards have celebrated some outstanding entrepreneurs who have gone on to become household names, including; Julie Deane OBE, Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt, BrewDog and Shaun Pulfrey, Tangle Teezer.
