At a ceremony in London last night, the team behind the Raspberry Pi won a prestigious award: The MacRobert Award.
The MacRobert Award is the UK’s longest-running and most prestigious national prize for engineering innovation. The award “recognises outstanding innovation, tangible societal benefit and proven commercial success.”
Beating the two other finalists, Darktrace (a cyber-security company) and Vision RT (radiotherapy pioneers) to the prize is a major achievement for the tech company which started so small with just 10,000 units and has now sold over 14 million units.
Congratulations to the entire company – it is an immense achievement and a validation of all the work you’ve put in to make the Raspberry Pi such a roaring success!
