Cambridge News & Cambridge Business magazine are looking to find the best innovations to have gone public in the last 12 months. Entries to Top Innovations 2014 can be products or services, can be in the development stage or already on the market and nominations will be put before an expert panel of judges, who will have the difficult task to decide who the top five are.
The judging process culminates in an awards evening on 17th September at Clare College, when Mike Lynch will be speaking. The prize for the top innovation could go to any firm in genres including technical, medical, digital and many others. The judging panel will include Andy Harter, inventor of virtual network computing and chief executive of RealVNC in Cambridge; Anne Miller, engineer and director of The Creativity Partnership and a regular contributor to Cambridge Business; and Stew McTavish, who runs ideaSpace at The Hauser Forum, where innovative ideas get a chance to flourish.
