i10: Top 10 Digital SME of the Year 2023

i10 is delighted to have made the top ten Digital SMEs of the Year 2023, known as the DL100.

The Digital Leaders 100 list was launched in 2013 as a new way to recognise individuals and organisations who demonstrate a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation across the public, private and non-profit sectors. Now in its 11th year, an impressive panel of judges deliberated over the nominations to create a shortlist of 10 for each of the ten categories:

  • Digital Leader of the Year

  • Young Digital Leader of the Year

  • Digital SME of the Year

  • AI and Data Innovation of the Year

  • Digital Public Service Innovation of the Year

  • Geospatial Innovation of the Year

  • GreenTech Innovation of the Year

  • HealthTech Innovation of the Year

  • Digital Skills or Talent Initiative of the Year

  • Emerging Tech Initiative of the Year

In addition, there is the Craig Macdonald Memorial Prize for grassroots organisations working in their local communities to help close the digital divide.

i10 has made the top ten in the Digital SME of the Year. SMEs in the UK are developing innovative digital services and products that are increasingly being recognised for overall economic development. This award recognises SMEs that, in the last 12 months, have delivered digital impact in their chosen sector.

Our award listing includes the following nomination summary:

Under the leadership of CEO & Founder Mark Hastings, Digital SME Consultancy i10 (DLNetZero50) is setting the standard for social value in the UK Tech Sector, offsetting carbon, becoming carbon negative, winning over £20m of new business and forecasting growth of 500% in FY23/24.

We are also delighted that our client at FSA, Diane Barlow, has been shortlisted as Digital Leader of the Year. Diane is an inspirational leader for women in technology, who places people at the centre, and strives to bring out their best, even at the most challenging times. At FSA, she has facilitated the successful delivery of multiple tech/digital projects during EU Exit and Covid.

Voting is now open and we would greatly appreciate any votes cast for Diane or ourselves.

We look forward to the results in June and wish the best of luck to our fellow nominees.
