We are delighted to announce that Welsh fintech company GoCompare will be our Headline Partner for the 2018 Wales Technology Awards.
The Wales Technology Awards, powered by the ESTnet (the voice of Welsh tech industry), champion the outstanding achievements and innovations made by Wales’ 3,000 technology companies.
With the support of GoCompare, the Awards will shine a spotlight on the tech sector’s role as a vital driving force for the Welsh economy.
One of the UK's most popular comparison websites, GoCompare was launched in November 2006 and was listed on the London Stock Exchange in November 2016.
The company has empowered people to take control of their household budgets, saving them money across a range of outgoings and changing the way they shop forever.
Jackson Hull, Chief Technology Officer of GoCompare, said: “At GoCompare we’re very proud of our Welsh roots, so we are delighted to support an event that complements our ambition of helping to position Wales as a leader in technology development. As a company we are committed to the creation of meaningful data and engineering-led careers, and are working hard to forge closer links with the business, government and academic communities.
“Wales is full of inspiring technology companies that do truly remarkable and often ground-breaking work, but we are almost too modest for our own good. The Wales Technology Awards are a fantastic opportunity for Wales-based technology leaders to enjoy some well-deserved time in the limelight, and raise the profile of the county’s vibrant tech sector.”
Avril Lewis, managing director of the ESTnet, said: “GoCompare’s success is an excellent demonstration of how Welsh innovations are changing the way we all work and live. The company exemplifies how the application of new technology can transform an industry. It’s continued development and adoption of new innovations has underpinned its growth to become a major Welsh employer and one of our most recognisable brands.
“It is a privilege to have GoCompare join us to support, recognise and celebrate the Welsh technology companies whose products and services are underpinning the success of practically every sector across the UK and further.”
The Wales Technology Awards 2018 will be held on the 3rd May at the Cardiff’s City Hall. If you would like to join Go Compare as a partner of this showcase event set to attract over 400 people from the tech industry in Wales take a look at available partnership packages here.
