Our founder and CEO, Colette Ballou, has been included in the list of the UK’s 100 most influential figures in the digital world. The Wired 100, in June’s edition of Wired UK, included Colette Ballou alongside the likes of Julian Assange from Wikileaks, Michael Acton Smith from Mind Candy, Mike Butcher from TechCrunch Europe and regular tech-junkie Stephen Fry.
This year’s Wired 100, which is the second edition of the list, compiles the top investors, entrepreneurs, designers, innovators and figures who are playing an influential role in shaping the UK’s digital space.
The inclusion of PR professionals highlights the increasingly important role of social-media savvy public relations for start-ups. As more and more companies enter Europe and the US, the need for building key relationships with influencers, customers and press becomes a growing necessity, which is where we come in.
If you’d like to meet Colette, she is mentoring at Springboard, Seedcamp, SxSW Start-Up Accelerator and IBM SmartCamp, and she is a judge of the Telegraph Tech Start-Up 100 and is part of Dave McClure’s 500startups. She will also be attending the DLD Womenconference in Munich and has been invited to participate in President Sarkozy’s e-G8 Forum to take place in Paris in May.
