TechPixies Founder Joy Foster wins Institute of Directors Startup Director of the Year 2018 for London and the South

Winning always feels good. TechPixies has been championing women since our inception and while that is and always has been our primary focus, winning a few awards along the way helps too!

Naga Munchetty from BBC Breakfast hosted the event and read the judges’ statement before presenting Joy with the award:

“Joy Foster has amazing credibility and leadership skills which have clearly been demonstrated in a few short years. Judges felt this was an excellent entry telling a very inspirational story of entrepreneurship and turning personal experiences and skills into profitable ventures that also serve a wider purpose.”

Joy attended the event with Renee Watson, founder of The Curiosity Box. Renee was a finalist for Innovator of the Year.
