Young engineers highlighted in competitionThe Royal Academy of Engineering’s Enterprise Hub Launchpad competition — a nation-wide search for the UK’s “greatest entrepreneurs in engineering and technology” between the ages of 19 and 25 — was won by 25-year-old Nick Schweitzer, the founder of the company Klydo and inventor of a ‘machine learning’ tool.

His prize was £15,000 of funding and membership of the Enterprise Hub.

The three finalists also included 25-year-old Jack Pearson of EngX (, a company that is developing a tool for automating complex manufacturing (and born from a research project at the University of Bristol).

EngX has created a hybrid manufacturing process that integrates 3-D printing, assembly and the wiring of products in one unit.

The third finalist was 25-year-old Brittany Harris, who was also voted the winner of the People’s Choice Award.

Along with a co-founder of the company Qualis Flow, she has developed software for monitoring the environmental impact of civil engineering and construction projects.
