We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been recognised by Tech Nation as one of the UK’s Leading Scale-ups and asked to participate in its Upscale 7.0 programme!
Upscale 7.0 is a six-month programme curated by Tech Nation and designed to support the UK’s most promising tech companies to accelerate their growth. It is truly an honour to be in such fine company as our fellow cohort members.
This is the second time we’ve been invited to take part in a programme by the UK network for tech entrepreneurs. We were also in the cohort for the network’s inaugural cybersecurity growth programme, Tech Nation Cyber, in 2019.
Tech Nation is both publicly and privately funded, with around 80% of its funding coming from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the rest generated by sponsorships or paid-for educational programmes. This hybrid funding structure provides the perfect combination of government clout and the kind of commercial and operational insights that sponsors bring to the table. Upscale 7.0 is sponsored by some real heavy hitters – global law firm Cooley, accountants and business advisors Cooper Parry and Silicon Valley Bank.
But beyond the practical value and insight that a programme like Upscale 7.0 brings us, affiliation with Tech Nation reflects the way we like to do business. The network’s values of ‘honesty, intimacy and trust’ and its ambition to positively transform societies and economies is also in our business purpose. It’s a match made in heaven, and we look forward to continued collaboration.
Thanks very much to Tech Nation, DCMS and the programme’s sponsors. We can’t wait to get started!
