Bombora Runs for Wales STEM Start-Up of the Year Award

Ocean energy solutions company Bombora has recently been announced as a finalist in the ‘Wales STEM Awards’, shortlisted for the ‘STEM Start-Up of the Year Award’.

Bombora is among 42 innovative businesses and individual finalists, making a difference to, and championing, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) in Wales.

The Wales STEM Awards were launched in a bid to recognise the innovative STEM work being undertaken in Wales. The finalists, which have been shortlisted in 15 categories, will find out if they’ve been successful at the awards ceremony taking place at Cardiff’s City Hall on November 12, 2020. (Initially scheduled for May 1, but postponed due to COVID-19).

Bombora’s MD, Sam Leighton, said: “I lead an ambitious team of experienced professionals dedicated to delivering a global solution to an enormous engineering challenge. We take a collaborative approach to our work at Bombora and proactively disseminate information, aiming to address the diversity gap and skills shortage and inspire the next generation. It’s good to have our commitment to STEM in Wales recognised by being shortlisted in the ‘STEM Start-Up of the Year’ category.”

Since setting up their European Head Office in Wales in 2017, Bombora’s team has grown rapidly from 4 to 24. Bombora’s £17-million Pembrokeshire Demonstration Project, supported by a £10.3 million ERDF grant through the Welsh Government, is on schedule for deployment in 2020.
