Just ONE week left to see if you could be the next Great British Scaleup!

logoSince the launch of our Great British Scaleup programme, 40 high-potential UK tech SMEs have elected to share their business plans with TechMarketView research directors and entrepreneurs from our partners, ScaleUp Group, to help them improve the chances of getting growth funding.

We’ve achieved our best success with Series A funding prospects, so we are dedicating our sixth Great British Scaleup event to those UK tech SMEs that envisage needing Series A funding within the next 3-18 months.

Here’s how it works.

You need to apply to attend a Pre-Qualification Session. This is a 90-minute, in-depth confidential review with TechMarketView and ScaleUp Group. We’ll ask you to take us through your business plan to understand why you believe you can rise to the “Series A Growth Challenge”. The most promising candidates will be invited by ScaleUp Group for further discussion with a view to mapping out a path to funding.

We will be holding Pre-Qualification Sessions at the offices of industry association techUK in London on 22nd May 2019.

What’s in it for me?

You’ll get the benefit of an independent, constructive critique of your business plan by some of the UK’s most respected market analysts and successful entrepreneurs absolutely free. Time and again we are told by Great British Scaleup candidates that this is insight ‘money can’t buy’. Indeed, our advice has often become an integral part of the company’s strategy. You can see plaudits from previous Great British Scaleup candidates on our website.

In addition, every company selected to attend a Pre-Qualification Session will get coverage by TechMarketView in UKHotViews, arguably the most influential daily commentary on the UK tech scene, and also through our social media channels. UKHotViews reaches thousands of executives, professionals, investors and entrepreneurs in the tech sector every working day, as well as Government, commercial enterprises and the media. Time and again we are told that coverage by TechMarketView ‘starts the phones ringing’.

Who is eligible?

You must be a fast-growing, privately-held UK-headquartered tech SME with recurring revenues of circa £1m p.a., growing by more than 30% p.a. The company Founder/CEO/MD and at least one other member of the executive team must be available to attend the Pre-Qualification Session if selected. Companies not meeting the criteria are welcome to apply for consideration in future programmes.

How do I apply?

You need to complete our online application form here. Entries close on Wednesday 24th April. Successful applicants will be notified by Wednesday 8th May. There is no fee required.

Apply now for the Great British Scaleup Series A Growth Challenge and turn your business plan into a growth opportunity!
