The ambassadors of London Tech Week – who include Eileen Burbidge, a partner at Monzo backer Passion Capital and member of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Group, Sarah Wood, co-founder and chief executive of video advertising marketplace Unruly, founder of business group Tech London Advocates Russ Shaw and president of industry body TechUK Jacqueline de Rojas – have shortlisted 30 change-makers who are having a particular influence on the UK tech space.

The individuals, who fit the criteria of displaying a spirit of innovation, disruption and progress, range from entrepreneurs to corporate innovators to coders to policymakers.
