On the launchpad for awards success


Three start-up companies from Falmouth University’s Launchpad programme have been shortlisted for this year’s Tech South West Awards.

Community seed sharing platform Plotty is up for the Sustainable Tech award. Codices, which develops tools for online broadcasters to make live interactive gameshows, and visitor distribution app Data Duopoly are up against each other in the Innovation category. Codices is also in the running for the Best Start-up award.

Codices CEO and founder Tim Edwards said: “We’re delighted to have been nominated for the Best Start-up as well as the Innovation Award among some of the top businesses in the south west.

“At Codices, we’re pushing the boundaries in entertainment, delivering cutting-edge interactive show formats to millions of viewers each month. It’s great that our talented team are getting the recognition they deserve.”

The winners will be announced at a digital Tech South West Awards ceremony on Thursday November 26.
