Tech Nation, the UK network for digital tech entrepreneurs, has revealed the 30 fast-growing tech startups that have been selected for its prestigious Upscale programme, now in its fourth year.

The 30 young companies were chosen from over 100 applications to the programme and will be coached over the next six months by some of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs and leading startup founders.

The six-month programme, which got underway last night by bringing all the companies together at the Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds, is designed to help fast-growth tech companies to successfully navigate the challenges of growing to the next stage. The challenges that most concern these growing companies include hiring and retaining talent, maintaining culture while scaling and expanding into new markets.

Upscale is a programme with a strong focus on learning from peers. It includes workshops, mentoring sessions and networking opportunities. Participants will benefit from frank mentoring from scale coaches who will conduct workshops and events over the next six months, helping the cohort to tackle challenges involved in scaling their businesses to the next stage.
