We’re delighted to announce that AppAttic Founder and CEO has won an Innovate UK Women Infocus Innovation award. The nation-wide competition was launched following an analysis of 8,566 historic Innovate UK funding applications. The findings highlighted that just 1 in 7 applications (14%) for funding were from women. With women in the UK half as likely to start a new business as their male counterparts, or indeed seek out external sources of funding, Innovate UK’s 2016 infocus awards sought to redress this imbalance by encouraging them to apply.

The award winners are attending the National Business Awards in London this evening where the winners will be introduced by Cisco and Innovate UK chairman Phil Smith.
