Barnstorming finale to Leicestershire Innovation Festival, as the county’s leading innovators were recognised during a glittering awards ceremony at the LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards, which Morningside were once again proud headline sponsors of.
Our Chairman Dr Nik Kotecha OBE was honoured to deliver a keynote speech, as well as to present the Innovation in Med Tech & Life Sciences Award, at the event hosted at Leicester City FC’s King Power stadium.
Speaking about the awards, Dr Nik said: “Congratulations to all of the nominees for making it through to the 2022 LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards finals. Now in its 4th year, the awards have become one of the stand-out dates in Leicestershire’s busy annual awards calendar, as well as one of the flagship events for the County’s ever popular Innovation Festival.
“You only have to look at the night’s innovators to see that companies and individuals in Leicestershire are becoming trailblazers for innovation and deserve to be recognised for their exceptional work.
“Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners who have used innovation to demonstrate the very best technology, services, digital advances and creative thinking, which Leicestershire has to offer.”
Speaking about the significance of today’s innovators to Leicestershire’s future prosperity, Dr Nik added: “The innovators of today will be the entrepreneurial success stories of tomorrow, so having the opportunity to understand and celebrate their often ground-breaking work is a real privilege.
“Leicester Innovation Festival and the Innovation Awards are central to the county’s efforts to showcase the remarkable innovations we have taking place here.
“It’s great to see this year’s winners receive the recognition they deserve for their inspirational work, which in many cases will bring about great benefits to our businesses, communities and society as a whole, in the years ahead.”
