Tech East 100 is a new initiative which aims to shine a spotlight on some of the leading-edge technology businesses located in the East of England.
The programme is led by Tech East and backed by Suffolk and Norfolk local authorities, New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, BT and an impressive list of local sponsors.
The Tech East 100 initiative reflects that the technology community in the East is diverse and broad ranging. Judges were tasked to identify: the region’s most exciting start-ups; scale ups with high growth potential, established national leaders and companies securing significant investment successes. Judges were entrusted to recognise local businesses pioneering new technologies or carving out new market niches as well as community players creating jobs for the local economy or new products and services to help make the world a better place.
In November 2019, leading private equity firm Inflexion invested in Ridgewall Ltd and backed the simultaneous acquisition of Ipswich, Suffolk based QDOS-sbl Group, a leading Managed IT Services and Unified Communications business focused on the UK and international hospitality sector. Through the acquisition of QDOS-sbl Group and other established specialist businesses Ridgewall offers a complete range of IT services to meet today’s changing business needs to include IT Managed Services: Cyber Security: Connectivity and Cloud Services: Unified Communications: Document Management and 24/7, 365 Proactive Monitoring and Management.
Dominic McAnaspie, Founder and CEO of Ridgewall, said, “We see the Tech East 100 initiative as helping us develop new market opportunities whilst raising our profile with customers and partners. We are keen to further develop our business and see the technology community thrive, creating new jobs and attracting and retaining talent in the region as well as throughout the UK and internationally.”
