Falmouth start-ups shortlisted


Two start-ups from Falmouth University’s venture studio, Launchpad, have been shortlisted for the 2021 Tech South West Awards.

Following on from its success at the awards last year, where it scooped best start-up, Codices, which develops live interactive online game shows, is shortlisted in two categories for best innovation and international success. Community seed sharing platform Plotty is up for the clean tech award.

Tim Edwards, Codices CEO and Co-founder, said: “As a team, we are delighted to be nominated for two awards for our continued growth with Quiz Kit, which today, has around three million viewers and over sixteen thousand streamers each month across the world. For the majority of 2021 we have also been working hard on an unannounced project which we can’t wait to share in the near future.”

Alex Craven, head of investment at Falmouth University, added: “It’s always great to see Launchpad start-ups being recognised in their sector. It’s testament to the dedication and belief they have in their innovations, and we wish Plotty and Codices the best of luck at this year’s awards.”
