These awards were not won by me, they came from the amazing work of a truly awesome group of people who I’m very proud to be able to work alongside. They have achieved so much over the past 12 months. We grew from 25 people to 51, we have won over £15m in contracts, raised £6.9m of investment, delivered on £1.5m of Innovate UK funded research, and done business across 3 continents. It has been an amazing 12 months, but most importantly, we have formed a family of people that look out for one another, we have kept each other safe through Covid-19, and supported both our own staff and our local community. We are looking forward to a really exciting 2021, and hope to have more exciting news to announce in January.
