BridgePoint Group 2022 Innovation Awards Nominations

We’re pleased to say it’s a diverse and exciting range of nominees for the BridgePoint Group 2022 Innovation Awards. We have chosen companies that demonstrate novel thinking and ingenuity from varied sectors.

First things first, let’s look at the judging criteria and our esteemed judging panel 

Each company’s innovations are judged against the following criteria: technical merit, social good and commercial potential. Other considerations are the extent that each nominee stretches traditional thinking and innovates to solve or meet an unmet demand or problem. This includes clever implementation and original thinking.

Our judges are Tony Shaw, Principal Patent Attorney, Allens Linklaters,  Marco Tallarida, Strategic Director of B. Product and Alan Baghdasarayan, Head of Innovation Advisory at BridgePoint Group.

Recapping last year’s winners

Before we share this year’s nominees with you, let’s recap last year’s winners who are GemKom, Andi Health and Pablo & Rusty’s Coffee Roasters.

GemKom is solving a problem in the medicinal cannabinoid sector, namely the renowned lack-of-consistency in the levels of active ingredients in final products. Andi Health is making proactive health the norm with a platform that allows people to steer their own health through personalised health guidance, powered by their own health data. Finally, Pablo & Rusty’s Coffee Roasting created a cold coffee which can be served straight from a can or keg and a nitrogen production method that has allowed them to create a delicious cold creamy drink which is lower in calories than the milk alternative.
