Developing Experts crowned Tech Nation Rising Stars winners!

We're thrilled to be one of 10 Rising Stars winners!

This Tuesday, our CEO, Sarah Mintey, and Curriculum Director, Paul Usher, attended the Tech Nation Rising Stars final. At the final, we had just three minutes to pitch our business to the judges and audience of around 150 tech industry leaders.

We're absolutely thrilled to announce, that after 20 excellent pitches delivered by tech startups from across the country, we were one of the 10 tech startups named this year’s  Tech Nation Rising Stars! 

Tech Nation empower ambitious tech entrepreneurs to grow faster through growth programmes and help to develop digital entrepreneurship skills. Rising Stars aims to find and showcase the most innovative and exciting tech startups across the UK. The competition offered early-stage companies, like Developing Experts, the chance to raise their profile, connect with mentors, investors and influencers and learn from other founders.

Alongside Developing Experts, there were 9 other worthy winners: People Matter, Vitaccess, Vet-AI, Metasonics, Tended (our favourite!), tickr, PPC Protect, Serelay and the brilliant SeedLegals. We had the pleasure of meeting these companies and watching their pitches at the final.

Our Curriculum Director, Paul, said “It was a really inspiring event, and was great to see so many great new tech products in all different sectors. It was a real honour to be in such great company. I personally loved another finalist Tended, who have created an intelligent safety monitor, and was really pleased to have them as winners alongside us.  For us, this is a huge achievement which is a reward for all the team’s efforts to make such a great product.”

We would like to thank Tech Nation and the Rising Stars sponsors TLT, BDODrive, Microsoft and Bing.
