The top places and sector winners from the 2015 list will be announced at an awards dinner on June 25 at the Hilton on Park Lane.

The Digital Leaders 100 list honours the highest digital achievements from across the UK’s public, private and non-profit sectors, celebrating individuals and organisations that are using digital to transform the UK’s public services.

The Lincolnshire Technology Hubs were set up as part of the county council’s onlincolnshire project to give businesses access to state-of-the-art digital technology.

Nicola Radford from Lincolnshire County Council said just to be included in the list is an amazing achievement: “I am over the moon that the efforts of the hubs to help Lincolnshire businesses keep up to date with technology and improve their digital skills and knowledge have received national recognition.

“We’ve worked with some fascinating businesses from budding entrepreneurs who want to make a prototype to manufacturing firms who want to improve the efficiency of their processes. And this is what the hubs 
are all about: enabling businesses to leverage new technology to achieve their potential.

So far we have welcomed 780 businesses through the doors and we’ve already won two national awards: a Digital Education and Expertise Award in the Next Generation Digital Challenge Awards 2014 and a High Impact Award 
from Global Entrepreneurship Week 2014.

“We’re keeping our fingers crossed that we can make it a hat-trick!”
