Ve Interactive is delighted to announce today that it has won a TechWorld 2011 Business Innovation Award.
Now in their fourth year, the awards celebrate the very best of UK innovation in the science and technology industries. The awards spanned three categories: Enabling Creativity, Energy and Environment, and Digital Connected World. The awards presentation followed a keynote address from the Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, and Andrew Levi, Managing Director Business Group, UK Trade and Investment.
Ve Interactive, which operates in the digital marketing and software space, was the winner of the Digital Connected World category, for its shopping cart lead generation and conversion technologies. Nine UK companies in total had been shortlisted across the three categories. The judging panel comprised of expert senior figures in business and innovation, including Head of Government Practice at PA Consultancy, Colm Reilly, who said: “This year’s entries were of particularly high quality, underling the growing strength of these awards.”
Commented David Brown, co-Founder-CEO, Ve Interactive “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised for Business Innovation by TechWorld and UKTI (UK Trade & Investment}. Both are valuable organisations in the promotion and support of British business. To stand on stage and receive an award from the Secretary of State for Business, the Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable and in front of a global business audience, was a truly great honour and Ve Interactive was thrilled to be put centre stage at Tech World in this way.
"To also have the chance to say thank you and give an acceptance speech reiterating Ve Interactive's achievements, ambitions and what we would like to see supported as SME policy by the government was incredible. This award is a fantastic validation of the hard work our team has put in to date in building Ve Interactive and of the exciting entrepreneurial culture that we foster here too. We are therefore elated to have been selected as one of Britain's leading innovators in the technology space.“
