Oxfordshire-based business Techpixies has won the Digital Course of the Year award at the inaugural   DigitalWomen Awards.

The DigitalWomen Awards, in association with Natwest Business and the Federation of Small Businesses, celebrate women working in digital and digital business who are doing great work in the digital space they operate in. The awards are open to any woman working in digital and entrepreneurship and entrants go through a rigorous judging process.

Joy Foster, Founder of TechPixies said:  “We never started TechPixies in order to win awards, we simply wanted to help 12 women return to work following a career break five years ago. I’m thrilled that by raising investment and moving our course online, we’ve been able to scale the business and transform lives of hundreds of women across the UK – breaking down tech barriers and helping women from all walks of life return to work, change careers or start a business so that they can do fulfilling, stimulating work they love while at the same time contributing financially to their families and the British economy.”

TechPixies is an award winning social enterprise which helps women upskill with modern technology in order to return to work, change careers or start a business. Since 2015, the company has helped more than 300 women upskill and as a result has won several awards including Women in Business Startup of the Year 2018 and Enterprise Nation Female Startup of the Year 2017. Joy and her company were recently profiled in Forbes for raising £150,000 and in Stella for breaking down barriers for women wanting to re-ignite their careers and in April 2019, TechNation named TechPixies ‘one to watch’ in the EdTech space.
