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


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

Steve has been shortlisted in the “Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises” category and is the only UK 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 in which we’ve doubled our headcount, opened a new Technology Centre near Coventry, signed a multi-£million deal with Sulzer and a partnership with leading manufacturer Shield Group, and secured further funding from bodies such as Innovate UK.

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


The popular vote

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