£258,145,819.00 has been raised by its Top21 winners since the inception of the initiative in 2018

The awards recognise world-class science and technology entrepreneurs, start-ups and ground-breaking innovation from across Cambridge and the East of England, and will be supported once again this year by the Cambridge Independent.

#21toWatch provides year-round exposure for all those who make the list.

Feedback received after the 2022 Top21 announcement event recognised that it is a “fantastic forum supporting the regional entrepreneurship ecosystem”.

Now in its fifth year, the #21toWatch initiative has showcased more than 1,000 people and companies. Of those that made the Top21, 47 per cent received funding since appearing on the list.

According to Forbes, who featured an article on the #21toWatch programme earlier this year: “Correlation isn’t causation, of course, but the figure suggests that a fair percentage of [#21toWatch] winners have commercial legs.”
