Cloud IQ has been named as one of London's most visionary digital companies in this year's 'Digital Innovators Power List' launched today by international law firm Bird & Bird LLP and London-based news brand, City A.M.
The Digital Innovators Power List identifies 50 of the freshest and most inspiring digital companies impacting the market as a "life changer" or a "market transformer" based in London.
Nick Peart, Chief Marketing Officer, Cloud IQ, says: "To be shortlisted for the Digital Innovator Power List is a testament to the rapid growth of Cloud IQ and follows a £4m investment round, including participation from PayPal. We look forward to participating in the events and showcasing how our pioneering technology is enabling businesses of all sizes to deliver dynamic individual user experiences that are beneficial to both consumers and the merchant.”
Nicholas Perry, Partner and Head of London, Bird & Bird, says: "London's position on the global stage has never been more important and it continues to be the home of some of the world's most pioneering digital companies. This year's Digital Innovators Power List celebrates some of the most visionary digital companies in the city and will explore the many ways in which technology is transforming the world. Alongside City A.M. and our partners, we are thrilled to recognise these growth-stage companies and provide a network of like-minded individuals who can stimulate, create and foster innovation."
With the help of a judging panel of digital experts, the top 50 will be whittled down between now and September 2018 until an overall winner is identified for the "life changer" and "market transformer" categories, winning them professional support to take their business to the next level.
The shortlist was agreed upon by City A.M., Bird & Bird and supporting partners tech PR agency Hotwire PR, UK technology trade association techUK, the UK's premier business organisation CBI and online investment platform Crowdcube. The companies were selected based on those which have the most captivating stories of innovation; are at growth stage; have secured institutional funding; are based in and around London; and are creating a buzz in the media.
Cloud IQ will participate in a series of events hosted at Bird & Bird over the course of the year where the judges, featuring representatives from the London digital space, will give their perspectives on the factors driving digital innovation in the City, how their creations are impacting everyday lives or markets and what they are looking for when it comes to choosing the final two digital innovators.
