We're delighted to have been ranked in the South West Tech 50 innovation ranking for 2020
Here at Koor we may only have launched our beta app a few weeks ago but we're thrilled to be already making an impact on the lives of singers across the UK.
We're delighted to announce that Koor placed at number 28 in the South West Tech 50 innovation ranking for 2020.
Following a reader vote held over two weeks, an independent judging panel chose their top 15 companies, from a 90-strong shortlist. The judges included Vicky Hunter (entrepreneur engagement manager (South West), Tech Nation
), Dan Pritchard (co-founder, Tech South West
), Tom Fox (tech growth lead, KPMG
), Rosie Bennett (manager, University of Bath SETsquared Innovation Centre
) and Jonathan Symcox (editor, BusinessCloud

Founder of Koor, a free app that helps choral singers learn, improve and enjoy singing, Simon Capet, said:
"We're really delighted to have been recognised - so early on - for our innovative approach. Koor has big ambitions. In this time of fear and isolation we want to create a global community that champions singing and helps people of all ages, nationalities, backgrounds and abilities to discover the joy of singing in a choir. Our app has been designed to be practical, accessible and lots of fun to use. It's early days for Koor and we're still building our catalogue of rehearsal files and supporting resources. Our hope, however, is that through our Hallelujah for the Front Line campaign (which will launch this week) we'll be able to help people get back to singing, as well as the positive mental and social health benefits that come with it."
