Set within the wider Cambridge Tech Week exhibition, Innovation Alley played home to the brightest early-stage companies and start-ups offering a dynamic and interactive showcase of their solutions.

We were delighted to welcome companies with innovative solutions in exciting technologies such as AI/ML, Medtech, Robotics and immersive technologies. In order to exhibit, organisations needed to be less than 5 years old and employ less than 10 members of staff.

A panel of judges selected the final 15 who exhibited at CTW23 across two days, and chose the winner of the CTW23 Innovation Alley Award.

The innovators were assessed on the following criteria:

  • Originality of the innovation
  • Potential commercial, economic or societal impact
  • Maturity of Go-to-Market plans

We were delighted to present InferSens, who develop Edge AI Sensor Technology, with the CTW23 Innovation Alley Award.  As well as PR coverage on the website and social media, they will also receive a generous promotional package with Business Weekly, including an editorial feature and 12 months of advertising.

Thank you to our supporters
