Birmingham-based entrepreneur shortlisted for global Talent Unleashed 2016 awards
Camran Khan, Director of Technology for Innovation Birmingham Campus-based digital lettings and property management provider, brightLET, has been shortlisted for this year’s international Talent Unleashed awards.
A cloud based lettings and property management platform that connects landlords directly with tenants, brightLET provides a 360 degree service which enables users to advertise, find a property, communicate and manage tenancies online without using a third party.
The Talent Unleashed awards recognise and reward game-changing, ground-breaking technology entrepreneurs and businesses from around the world across five categories: Best start-up for social impact, Best start-up for tech innovation, Best SME for tech innovation, Most Disruptive CIO/CTO and Best Tech IPO/Venture Capital Raising.
Mr Khan was shortlisted for this year’s Most Disruptive CIO/CTO category, having reached the final 10 businesses nominated for the 2015 awards. The five grand prize category winners receive a trip to Silicon Valley in USA, where they will attend a cutting edge technology conference and a bespoke tour of some of the region’s leading tech companies.
Camran Khan, Director of Technology at brightLET, said:
“I am delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award for the second year running and am thrilled to be representing the West Midland region as part of an awards programme which recognises worldwide leading digital innovators.
“A global award of this calibre provides us with a brilliant opportunity to extend brightLET’s services to the global marketplace and comes at an exciting time for the company following the launch of our new commercial offering earlier this year.”
