Honouring Science Park businesses
Over 150 people representing businesses from across the Test Valley area gathered at the Army Flying Museum for the15th annual Test Valley Business Awards gala dinner and awards ceremony. The event raised over £1100 for Romsey Cancer Support Centre, Jane Scarth House.
From over 200 entries, four Science Park businesses were recognised at this years’ awards. Critical Software was named the winner of the Innovation & Technology Award, with Inflowmatix and Tonic Analytics both achieving highly commended accolades in the same category. Recent Catalyst programme graduate Signly was highly commended in the very hotly contested Small Business of the Year Award too.
Dr Robin Chave, hosting on behalf of the Science Park, commented: “We have been a proud Gold Sponsor of the Test Valley Business Awards for over a decade because we understand the important role that awards play in championing regionally-based businesses and supporting their growth strategies. It was extremely pleasing to see so many companies based here at the Science Park achieving success in this year’s awards: a significant achievement and one that is testimony to the incredible innovative work carried out here.”
Previous Science Park companies that have achieved success in this awards scheme include Fresh Relevance, 1st Touch, Symetrica and Photonstar LED. All have gone on to accomplish significant commercial growth.
