Celebrating 50 people who are driving innovation in East London

We are delighted to announce the launch of the East London Innovators, a campaign to showcase and celebrate the creative, collaborative and inventive spirit of 50 individuals who are driving innovation in East London.

This is a major new campaign from Here East that will celebrate the phenomenal individuals we work alongside every day.

We want to showcase those individuals who are committed to making a positive impact within their organisation, community or business. We are looking for the people who are directly contributing to new ways or models of doing things, shaking the status quo and putting collaboration at the heart of their work.

Nominations are now open and we’re inviting anyone working within East London to submit an application. From sculptors to robotics coders and everyone in-between, we’re on the lookout for the change-makers, the disruptors and the team-players.

All nominations will be reviewed by our expert panel of judges including Katherine Oliver, Bloomberg, Theo Blackwell, Chief Digital Officer, London, Russ Shaw, Founder, Tech London Advocates & Global Tech Advocates, Jules Coleman, Co-founder, Resi and Julian Blake, Editor, DigitalAgenda.

The 50 Innovators will be interviewed and photographed by an East London-based photographer with all images celebrated at an exhibition hosted at Here East. The list of 50 innovators will also be presented to media, business leaders, local and national government.
