Banbury Innovation Award 2013

The Banbury Innovation Award was inspired by the work of Colin Sanders, a local entrepreneur and inventor whose name lives on in The Colin Sanders Innovation Centre Banbury. (The Centre supports a range of innovative media and technology businesses and is managed by Oxford Innovation). His mixing consoles have achieved world-wide fame in the recording industry allowing producers to automate their settings by computer control. This award seeks to replicate his example by bringing innovative and fresh ideas to light and reward the winners with a trophy, a cash award and the opportunity of developing their idea or business with a superb package of support from a range of local professional services.

Over the past six years we have had the pleasure of seeing a host of fantastic ideas and met some inspired people in the search for a winner. In the following pages you can see how easy it is to enter The Banbury Innovation Award 2013.

The interactive software we create is now enjoyed by millions of people around the globe and the business support we’ve since received has helped us overcome some tough hurdles. We’re honoured to have been part of such a well organised and prestigious event which is a great springboard for local innovation.”

Paul Fowler, Winner of the Banbury Innovation Award 2011 said:

“My experience during the judging process and ultimately winning the award for 2011 gave me the confidence to pitch the idea to a much wider market. The result has been truly amazing, the Spitfire project has been globally acknowledged as a fantastic idea and has gone on to win a Business wealth club 2011 award and has had tremendous coverage by the media. I would recommend entering the business awards to any business, it is safe environment to test your great ideas!”
