After a nationwide call-out and an intensive and thorough judging process, we are delighted to announce the 30 companies joining Tech Nation’s flagship programme for mid-stage, fast-growing tech companies: Upscale 5.0.
“The UK has a fantastic track record of producing globally successful tech companies and this is another strong group of firms that will benefit from Tech Nation’s Upscale programme. It highlights the strength and diversity of our digital economy with startups in fintech, retail and recruitment. We are doing all we can to ensure the tech sector gets the support it needs to thrive.” Digital Minister Matt Warman
With previous cohorts including companies such as Elvie, Bulb and Bloom & Wild, the prestige that the Upscale programme carries is high. Not only that, but the calibre of judges on our judging panel represent incredible expertise, including names such as Sarah Wood, author of Stepping Up and Cherry Freeman, CEO of LoveCrafts.
“It’s incredibly exciting to announce the 30 companies joining the Upscale 5.0 programme, especially with many of this year’s cohort using technology to address important societal issues around health, waste and education. Through workshops and peer networking, Tech Nation’s Upscale programme helps some of the UK’s most disruptive tech companies solve crucial scaling challenges, including international expansion, hiring and retaining talent at pace and developing leadership capabilities.” Liam Ward, Upscale Lead, Tech Nation
Jason McKeown, Co-founder & CEO, Neurovalens commented: “I am delighted that Neurovalens has been selected for the Tech Nation Upscale programme, especially as we are the only Northern Irish company to have been invited to take part. Neurovalens has grown rapidly so this programme comes at an extremely important time for us as we expand into key global markets while also developing our medical R&D pathways.
