Exciting news! The UK Creative Industries Council has selected OnJam as one of 100 CreaTech Ones To Watch in 2021.
The CreaTech Ones To Watch highlights pioneering businesses at the intersection of creativity and technology. The businesses are mostly start-ups and scale-ups.
This year’s list was published ahead of London Tech Week’s virtual CreaTech showcase, which will be held on 21 September 2021.
Emily Ingram, Co-Founder and CEO of OnJam, said: “It’s an honour to be recognised by the UK Creative Industries Council among such impressive and varied businesses in the creative sector. OnJam is still a new business but we’ve got big plans. This has really given us a lift!”
OnJam is a virtual venue for fans and artists to come together, and for artists to earn meaningful revenues online. We’re on a mission to make online concerts and entertainment events more accessible, engaging and memorable than ever before.

The UK Creative Industries Council promotes opportunities for investment and job creation in the creative industries. As a result, one of its focus areas is CreaTech.
CreaTech shows strong potential for generating new sources of revenue, employment and cultural value. It is also one of the fastest-growing areas of UK venture capital investment.
Each year, the UK CIC’s list of 100 Ones To Watch demonstrates British innovation and ingenuity. As a result, the businesses on the list are examples of dynamic growth opportunities in B2B and B2C for investors, ministers and the creative industry at large.
Dr Jeremy Silver, CEO of Digital Catapult, the UK authority on advanced digital technology, and Chair of the CIC R&D and Innovation working group, said: “The time is now to accelerate innovation in the creative industries and boost R&D, to fuel the UK’s COVID recovery and to take our industries to new heights.”
The Creative Industries Council publishes the Ones To Watch list once a year with support from Digital Catapult, Facebook, Moore Kingston Smith and UKRI (AHRC).
The aim is to highlight breakthrough CreaTech businesses in the UK. A panel of industry leaders, funding bodies and experts selected this year’s list.
