The UK boasts an impressive line-up of tech talent and social entrepreneurs. At Nesta, we’re particularly interested in that sweet spot that combines the two.

With that in mind, here’s our list of ten brilliant tech entrepreneurs and innovators using technology to make a positive difference in the UK today.

We brought together an expert Nesta panel to identify tech leaders with revolutionary ideas in fields as diverse as education, health, scientific research and open data.

We hope this list not only acknowledges the positive impact people are making with technology, but also opens up discussion on top tech talent.
