TLT sponsors Tech Nation Rising Stars

TLT are sponsoring Tech Nation's Rising Stars 2019, the UK's newest pitch competition for innovative, early stage start-ups.

Rising Stars is aimed at digital tech companies at seed to pre-Series A funding stage that have been running for one to three years, with revenues of up to £1.5m.

TLT partners David Gardner and Andrew Jennings are helping to judge the awards, alongside Tech Nation and representatives from co-sponsors Microsoft, Bing and BDO Drive. 

A semi-final bootcamp takes place in Manchester in January, with 20 businesses then selected to pitch at the Grand Final in London on 6 March 2019.

Ten successful finalists will receive a tailored package of support, including introductions to mentors and investors. This package will include a pre-deal health check from TLT to help with preparation for the fundraising process and their longer term vision to scale the business.

TLT corporate partner Andrew Jennings commented: "It is a real privilege to get to know and understand the businesses that are part of Tech Nation's Rising Stars. There is real ambition and an outstanding range of ideas that, if successful, could genuinely deliver change. It will be fantastic to watch the companies progress and to play a part in their journey."

TLT supports fast growth and entrepreneurial businesses with the full range of their legal requirements, helping to keep them on course as they scale and grow their businesses.

Tech Nation empowers ambitious tech entrepreneurs to grow faster through growth programmes, digital entrepreneurship skills, a visa scheme for exceptional talent and by championing the UK's digital sector through data, stories and media campaigns.
