NI tech companies win big at Digital DNA Awards 2019

  • The annual Digital DNA awards took place last night, celebrating the best and brightest of Northern Ireland's digital industries.

    Companies from across Northern Ireland gathered last night at St. Anne’s Cathedral for the 2019 Digital DNA awards to celebrate Northern Ireland's digital excellence. A range of awards were presented for tech companies of all sizes and specialities in addition to accolades for certain exceptional individuals who really stood out in the NI tech sector and digital industries throughout the year.

    This year's overall Company of the Year award went to Whitespace, the former venture capital fund turned software development company that has built an exceptional team and now works with some of the biggest brands in the world. Whitespace's global success also earned it the Deal of the Year award, cementing a big win for the Belfast and London-based company.

    Simon Bailie, Chief Executive of Digital DNA, spoke about the event: "Our independent panel of judges were overwhelmed and impressed with the calibre of entries. Having gone from strength to strength, winning this competition has solidified itself as a launch platform for some organisations and individuals to go bigger and better whilst also recognising the impact that some of our more established firms and personalities have had."
