For the first time, all 20 Northern Stars finalists will receive support and promotion from Tech North. Both the 10 winners and the 10 runners up will receive pitch training, a PR campaign and media training as well as personalised support and communications around opportunities for their business. All 20 will also receive tickets to, and a place on an exhibition stand at, our Founders’ Network Summit in spring 2018.
How to apply
To apply for Northern Stars, you need to be an early-stage tech startup; have a product on the market that has gained traction, and have raised no more than £2 million in equity-based investment. We’ll be holding a series of regional heats across the North in the coming months, and the grand final will take place in November.
Over £6 million has been raised by winning Northern Stars companies to date, and each cohort has had at least one company raise or sign a deal worth £1 million. Northern Stars has helped our winners find clients, commercial partners, investment and media exposure.
