Aptem named as a British Data Awards 2021 Finalist

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been named a Finalist in the British Data Awards 2021.

The British Data Awards is an annual campaign that aims to uncover data success stories. Organisations taking part this year include FTSE 100 giants, tech unicorns, public sector bodies, newly launched not-for-profit organisations and everything in between.

The British Data Awards was launched to help discover and celebrate the most passionate data-led organisations, no matter their size. Some organisations named as Finalists have the potential to change the world, while others are having a much more local, but nonetheless important impact. And with some 149 entries received, competition to be named a 2021 Finalist proved to be particularly tough.

Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech and British Data Awards judge said: “We set-off on a quest to find our Finalists back in February, and it’s been quite a journey! Judging the entries has been a challenge due to the number of high quality entries, but it’s also been a great privilege. It’s reminded us of the sheer talent and ingenuity that makes the UK such a global powerhouse for all things data. All our Finalists should be very proud.”

Richard Alberg, CEO and Founder, Aptem said: “We are delighted to have been selected as one of the Finalist’s for the British Data Awards. At Aptem data underpins everything we do as an organisation. Our data strategy provides us with deeper insights about the markets we operate. This allows us to create market-leading solutions across the Apprenticeships, Employability and Skills space.” 

The 2021 judges include: Neil Carden, COO of Forth Point, Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech, Mahana Mansfield, Data Science Director at Deliveroo, Tej Parikh, Chief Economist at the Institute of Directors, Harriet Rees, Head of Data Science at Starling Bank and Dr Jo Watts, CEO & Founder of Effini.
