Finygo announced as a ConnectTVT 2018 50 Game Changer
Finygo is delighted to be selected as one of ConnectTVT’s 2018 50 Game Changers in the Thames Valley. Now in its third year, the programme brings together the region’s most disruptive, fast growth digital and tech players.
Wokingham headquartered Finygo is a sporting analysis and community app for anglers who want to track their fishing adventures and catch more fish. As one of the 50 Game Changers, Finygo, joins a community of future-facing start-ups and scale-ups, invested in the region and looking to drive change through product and service innovation.
Launched in 2016 by ConnectTVT founder, Louize Clarke, the 50 Game Changers was designed to give a voice to, and connect, the Thames Valley’s digital ecosystem.
Previous Changers include Fairsail, acquired by Sage People, Oxford Nanopore, who recently closed a £100m investment round, and Datasift, acquired by Meltwater this year.
Louize explains, “50 Game Changers is so much more than a list of highest turnover companies – it’s about those championing change. To create a thriving digital landscape, we have to encourage a diverse mix of businesses across our innovation layers. We love to give a voice to those supporting community projects, the early stage start-ups right through to those heading towards their exits.”
This year’s cohort is the strongest to date and have, collectively, secured over £55m in funding in the last 12 months. The programme is supported by Henley Business School, EY, FSE and Fora.
Finygo COO and co-founder Katy Atkinson, who was born and raised in the region, says, “As a small tech start-up we’re delighted to receive this recognition for our efforts in the digital space at such an early stage in the business.”
