Milton Keynes is a city born out of new ideas and a vision for future prosperity, making it one of the most exciting technology hotspots in the country.


Fredi Nonyelu, Chairman of Biztech technology forum in Milton Keynes and SEMLEP, explains: “If you've had a technology-based idea, with a proven real world application, and you've seen it through to the next stages of development in the last two years, then BrightSparc and Digital Awards wants your entry.


“The awards are simple to enter, using our online form, with eleven award categories to choose from, each recognising blue sky thinking and achievement within the MK and SEMLEP region.”
