We’re excited to announce that we’re joining Upscale in 2017. The Upscale programme from Tech City UK powers some of the fastest growing UK tech companies on their scaling journey.
The Upscale companies represent a wide spread of sectors and reflects the UK’s strength in certain areas, for example in FinTech and eCommerce. The increasing importance of sectors like data analytics and marketplaces is also evident.
One of the objectives of Tech City UK is to accelerate the growth of the country’s digital and tech sector. The companies that join the Upscale programme have all overcome significant hurdles and have the makings of brilliant businesses. It’s great to see so many regions and sectors represented in the cohort, demonstrating the great diversity this country has when it comes to digital technology.
As part of the Upscale programme we’ll work with some of the most experienced, brightest minds in the tech ecosystem helping us to build our business over the coming year.
As part of the programme, the 33 Upscale companies will work with experienced and recognised Scale Coaches. This year, some of the graduates of Tech City UK’s first Upscale programme will return to mentor the new intake, demonstrating one of the strengths of the UK’s tech ecosystem where successful companies work hard to help the next generation.
Companies will take part in as many as 30 sessions, that are designed around their specific needs. The challenges discussed will include maintaining team morale, managing the board, raising future funds and taking the company global.
