The fourth annual #21toWatch Top21 list of individuals, companies and innovations has been unveiled in a ceremony at the Cambridge Union
The first in-person #21toWatch ceremony since the pandemic began, it recognised exciting and emerging talent from Cambridgeshire and the East of England’s renowned science and technology cluster, with representation from a range of sectors, including artificial intelligence, digital technology, automotive and agritech.
Created by entrepreneur Faye Holland, founder and director of the award-winning PR and marketing agency cofinitive, the #21toWatch initiative has again been backed this year by the Cambridge Independent. It features an eclectic mix of ground-breaking innovations including a needle-free injection, a robot ‘brain’, sustainable cellulose-based glitter and a sustainable raw material made from coffee grounds.
This year’s list features a sharp focus on medical innovation, early disease detection, drug discovery, personalised medicine and, unsurprisingly, the sustainability/net zero agenda.
