Digital Innovators Power List

umotif has been named as one of the South East’s most visionary digital companies in the inaugural ‘Digital Innovators Power List‘ launched today by international law firm Bird & Bird LLP and London-based news brand, City A.M.

Revealed last night at a launch event hosted at Bird & Bird’s dynamic new space at 12 New Fetter Lane, London, and launched today on the Power List identifies 20 companies based in London and the surrounding areas in the media, health tech, fintech, ed tech and cybersecurity and identity sectors that are leading the way in digital innovation.

The shortlist was agreed by City A.M, Bird & Bird and supporting partners digital association Digital Catapult, tech PR agency Hotwire PR and information platform Springwise – after careful consideration on which companies, in their respective sectors, have the most captivating stories of innovation, are setting rather than following trends, demonstrate the most revenue potential, are home grown businesses and are creating a buzz in social media.

Nicholas Perry, Partner and Head of London, Bird & Bird, says: “London and the surrounding areas are today the breeding ground for some of the world’s most pioneering companies, so we wanted to celebrate that talent and explore how digital is transforming the world around us through this initiative. Technology and innovation lie at the heart of what we do at Bird & Bird so – alongside City A.M. and our partners – we are thrilled to be able to recognise these companies and develop a network of like-minded individuals who can inspire one another.”

umotif will participate in a series of quarterly events hosted at Bird & Bird over the course of the year, where panels featuring representatives from the companies on the Power List will give their perspectives on the factors driving digital innovation in the City and how their creations are transforming everyday lives.
