We’re happy to round out this week with a big congratulations to the start-ups that are part of Tech City UK’s Upscale Class of 2017. Upscale is a program for the most promising early stage start-ups to begin their journey to success.
Each of the 33 companies are mentored by some of the UK’s most successful tech entrepreneurs including Riccardo Zacconi (KING.com/Candy Crush founder); Martha Lane Fox and Brent Hoberman (Lastminute.com founders); Lesley Eccles, (FanDuel founder); and David Buttress (Just Eat founder).
The start-ups in Upscale are from a wide variety of tech sectors. The companies also reflect the UK’s strength in particular markets, such as FinTech and eCommerce.
Our clients Chargifi and Signal Media made the class of 2017. On top of those great companies, we also have nine companies in the Upscale Class of 2017 in which we represented the lead investor in their fundraising round. These include Blaze, Boiler Room, Charlie, Curve, Echo, Good Lord, Mastered, POQ and Trussle.
We wish each company success as they start their scaling journey. Here’s to the Upscale Class of 2o17.
