We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been named a Finalist in the British Data Awards

Event Store has reached the Finalists of the British Data Awards 2024 in the category of 'Start-Up Of The Year' alongside Data Literacy Academy, Definely and Made With Intent.

The British Data Awards is an annual quest to discover and celebrate the UK’s data success stories. Organisations taking part this year range from FTSE 100 heavyweights, public sector pioneers, technology unicorns, fast-growing scale-ups, essential Not-For-Profits, and everything in between.

Were a Finalist

A record 321 entries were received for the fourth edition of the British Data Awards which means that competition to be named a Finalist proved to be particularly tough, so we’re especially pleased to be announced as a Finalist.
