We are excited to reveal the 20 companies selected as UK Finalists to go through to the Rising Stars Winners Judging Roundtable. Following first-class pitch training from Billy Webber, Jill McKinney and their team from Pitch for Success, our Regional Winners pitched to our judging panel at the Semi-Final in early January.
The panel – which was led by GP Bullhound Vice President Ed Prior – included VCs, angel investors, experienced entrepreneurs and tech community leaders from across the UK. It marked each pitch on value proposition, competitive advantage, market traction, team experience and potential to scale. We thank our Semi-Final judging panel for their time, expertise and insightful questions.
Now, a panel of judges including Stephen Kelly, Chairperson of Tech Nation, and Anika Henry, COO of Google for Startups UK, will decide the 10 Rising Stars 3.0 Winners at the upcoming roundtable.
