The Techie Awards 2018 are a Business Exchange initiative to celebrate the innovation and entrepreneurship of the IT community in Swindon & Wiltshire. We’re delighted to have been named as finalists in the inaugural awards alongside 12 other companies!
Foregenix was set up in 2009 where it was originally based in Surrey; however we set up shop in Marlborough, Wiltshire, in 2013 and never looked back.
Most of the employees at our Wiltshire based head office come from the towns surrounding Marlborough and it’s great that we’ve been able to provide jobs to the local community. We’ve always been humbled by award nominations and this is no exception. Being recognised in the county we operate in is really something; it’s a great feeling to know we’ve made an impact.
Our focus is - and always has been - to provide a consistently high-quality service to our clients globally. This has driven our services and products to develop and scale to continue providing the high level of service our clients expect.
“We’re very excited about what we’re doing at Foregenix and believe that we are making a hugely positive difference for organisations around the world in helping them to defend their businesses from cyber threats. Our success is ultimately due to our clients and our talented teams around the globe – we’d like to thank them for their trust and support.” – Andrew Henwood, CEO.
The judges gathered on April 16th to decide who made the cut. The full list of successful entries are as follows:
- Source Code Software

According to The Techies blog post:
“Despite the area being a hotbed for technology, there is currently no other award scheme dedicated to recognising this sector and its impact on our local economy.
The awards have been designed to be fully inclusive, with all categories open to one-man-bands to corporations.”
There are 12 award categories:
- Most Innovative Tech Solution
- Best User Experience

- Using Tech to Transform Business
- Driven by Data
- Tech Team of the Year

Earlier this year we were lucky enough to be featured in the Sunday Times SME Export Track 100 (Britain’s SMEs with the fastest-growing international sales) and the Fast Growth 50. The Techies awards ceremony will be taking place on May 10th 2018, at Hartham Park. Fingers crossed we will be celebrating a win!
