A multitude of honours for St John’s Innovation Park and its community

Fri, Jan 21, 2022

St John’s Innovation Park has been honoured in Business Weekly’s New Year Honours listings with a special mention of the Park’s ambitious expansion plans – the recently approved Dirac Building.

A multitude of Park occupiers also feature in the annual honours which highlight the leading practitioners and places across the region in a diverse raft of business segments.

Domingo Negroni, Building Manager, Savills, said: “Ranking in the top 5 ‘Business Space Environments’ in the region is a really proud moment.

“As an integral part of the North Cambridge research and development cluster, the Park provides a thriving working environment for innovative R&D, technology and science companies which have created a wonderful collaborative community on site. Well done to companies who have also been given well-deserved accolades.”

Park occupiers Raspberry Pi and Darktrace feature in the Top 10 ‘Science and Technology Innovators’ category. Darktrace is cited as a ‘world-leader in home-grown cyber-security tech’ and Raspberry Pi is celebrated for putting new computer power in space to aid coders in UK schools.

PwC takes pole position, in the Top 10 ‘Financial Advisors’ roll call with the Cambridge PwC office recognised as ‘outstanding’ in terms of capability and customer care.  

And Conscious Communications, based at St John’s Innovation Centre, made the Top 10 ‘Image Makers’ list for its excellent marketing and public relations work. 

Grant Thornton's Cambridgeshire Ltd report

There was further praise for a duo of Park occupiers in the recent Cambridgeshire Limited league tables.

The annual ‘Cambridgeshire Limited’ list, now in its eighth year, is created by financial analysts Grant Thornton, based on turnover.

Raspberry Pi placed 16th in the 50 most profitable businesses in Cambridgeshire in 2021, with Darktrace listed 7th in the ‘Growth 20’ list and placed 16th in the Top 100 companies in Cambridgeshire in 2021 based on turnover.

A new feature for the 2021 league table is a spotlight on the international contribution to the local economy. Qualcomm Technologies ranked 4th in a list of the 20 largest Cambridgeshire-based subsidiaries of internationally owned companies, based on turnover.
