Digital Catapult: ‘Best on Show’ Showcase – Open Call

For the next Digital Catapult Showcase we’re looking to show the ‘best of the best’ in digital innovations: we are putting out a call for UK award winning organisations to join our ‘Best On Show’ showcase at the Digital Catapult Centre in London.

Whether you’ve won an industry award, competition or media award we’re looking to showcase the great innovations, technologies and solutions that UK startups and SMEs are creating and winning awards for. If your product, app, installation or new business is award winning we want to hear from you.

There is a huge opportunity for the UK to become a leader across our four focus areas and in our latest Showcase we’re looking to prove how the UK is leading and the achievements being made.

Organisations should have won an award and work within one of our focus areas:

– Sharing closed data between organisations
– Sharing creative and licensed content more simply
– Sharing personal data in a way that’s trusted and secure
– Sharing data generated across the Internet of Things.

Selected companies will have the opportunity to showcase alongside our Scaleup Boost winners and should be able to showcase in our London Centre from May – July 2016.

The Open Call will close on 8 April 2016, with applications reviewed shortly afterwards.

Please go to the Digital Catapult’s website for further information and how you can apply.
