Lontra only British category in European Inventor Awards

Lontra CEO Steve Lindsey nominated for European Inventor of the Year!

We’re thrilled to announce that our Founder and CEO Steve Lindsey is shortlisted in the 2017 European Inventor Awards.

Steve is shortlisted in the “Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises” category and is the only British finalist in the prestigious Awards ran by the European Patent Office. The winner of the annual innovation prize will be announced at the ceremony in Venice on 15 June… and we’ve got our fingers crossed!



This is a fantastic personal achievement for Steve, yet also reflects a remarkable few years for Lontra. We’ve doubled our headcount, opened a new Technology Centre near Coventry and signed a multi-£million deal with Sulzer. More recently a partnership with leading manufacturer Shield Group, securing further funding from bodies such as Innovate UK.

We’re extremely thankful for all the support we’ve had along the way and look forward to an even more exciting future.


The popular vote

Furthermore as a finalist Steve will be entered along with the two other nominees in his category. A people’s choice award consequently determined by public “popular vote”.
