Vicky Addison, Head of Business Incubation, Innovation & Growth at the University of Lincoln, was the chair of the judging panel.

She said: “The judges were really encouraged by the quality of the nominations this year, which were both innovative and inspiring.

“It was lovely to see a wide range of businesses applying, and bringing forward many organisations which don’t always get enough recognition.

“I’m looking forward to celebrating with all the finalists and winners next month.”

The judging panel also included representatives from event sponsors Ringrose Law, Duncan & Toplis, Lincoln Science & Innovation Park, Wright Vigar, Lincoln Minster School, the Productivity Programme, and the Greater Lincolnshire LEP.

The finalists will be announced on The Lincolnite on Friday, April 29, at midday.
