The Digital Leaders 100 is a list of 100 individuals and organisations nominated by the Digital Leaders community against 10 categories of 10. Once the list is made, it is voted on to put it into order.
Since the Digital Leaders 100 list began life as DL50 in 2013, we have now produced three lists, totaling 250 places shared between 198 individuals and organisations who were put forward by more than 2,000 unique nominations. During the course of the last three years, the list has attracted over 140,000 votes.
This prestigious collection of innovative individuals and organisations is one of which anyone would be pleased to be a member. It contains: over 20 Lords, MPs and Councilors; 40 Senior Civil Servants; 6 Government Departments and 14 Councils; over 50 Charities; and nearly 60 Digital Businesses.
