Over the last week, Tech Nation have been announcing the regional winners of their 3rd Rising Star competition and we are honoured to be one of the Regional Winners. The competition in its digital format had a record number of 330 applications resulting in 5 finalists from each region and a total of 55 winners selected. Tendertec are ecstatic to be in the company of iungo Solutions, Immersity Ltd, Nightingale HQ and Yoello for the Wales region finalists.
In its third year, Rising Stars 3.0 is the UK’s only national competition for innovative, early-stage tech companies, designed to showcase the best in the country and to help companies on their growth journey.
Tech Nation are renowned for nurturing tech companies and helping them to achieve scale and growth, so we are excited to make the cut. We will have the opportunity to meet leading investors, influencers and corporates and hope to follow in the footsteps of previous winners such as Skyscanner and Monzo.
Competitions Lead, Esme Caulfield, noted the diversity of applicants this year with a range of companies from every corner of the UK, going on to say “The 55 Rising Stars Regional Winners are companies that are proving their resilience and adaptability, building products that will support businesses and customers both now, and into the future. They are all deserving of recognition – and here at Tech Nation, we’re thrilled to celebrate and showcase them.”
The competition also received 39% of applications from female founders and co-founders, which is wonderful news given the gender imbalances that women are currently facing in business, specifically, the widening gap in female led start-ups and women in STEM.
Our CEO Dr. Afroditi Konidari added “We are beyond thrilled that Tendertec has been chosen as a Rising Stars Wales Regional Winner. Being recognised by Tech Nation is a proud moment for our team and will be instrumental in showcasing the impact that Tendertec’s safety and care AI products are creating in the post Covid-19 era. We believe that this recognition will shine a wider spotlight to those challenged the most by this pandemic, our elderly and frontline workers, and the companies working relentlessly to develop solutions to support them.”
Tech Nation’s Rising Stars are on track to become the world leading tech companies of tomorrow, using technology to tackle the world’s greatest challenges. The competition provides the opportunity for the best of the nation’s early-stage scaleups to meet leading investors, influencers and corporates.
We are sure to have more news on our progress in the competition as we prepare for the next stages, so stay tuned.
