Supporting UK tech start-up growth.
Tech Nation is the UK’s driving force when it comes to supporting technology start-ups and scale-ups in achieving their goals.
Established in 2010, Tech Nation’s mission is to unlock the growth potential of 1,000 scaling tech leadership teams across the UK by 2022. Their goal is to contribute to a future in which anyone with vision and drive can access the skills and support needed to succeed as a game-changing leader.
The UK’s only national early-stage tech scaleup competition.
Among Tech Nation’s flagship initiatives is their Rising Stars competition. It’s designed to help the most exciting early-stage tech companies take their business to the next level and become the world-leading tech companies of the future.
Rising Stars attracts entries from early-stage tech companies across the UK, eventually whittling them down to five regional winners, then 20 finalists.
Entry criteria include companies being seed to pre-series A funding stage; a digital tech business with a product or service to sell; at least one active client or pilot; with demonstrable market traction, and with UK headquarters.
HyperFinity celebrates a double success.
We’re proud to announce that HyperFinity were not only selected as one of five regional winners for Yorkshire, but also made the final 20, the sole representative from our region to do so.
As part of the Rising Stars competition Tech Nation provided a series of excellent sessions on topics such as delivering the perfect pitch and becoming investor ready.
This fantastic recognition further cements our belief that customer-led decision intelligence, powered by data science and AI, is vital for retailers and brands to compete and succeed.
