We are pleased to announce that, due to a change in format, we’ve extended the application deadline for this year’s Elevator Pitch competition to 30th September.

We’ve been so inspired by the extent of innovation and talent from across the UK’s technology scene, that we’ve decided to produce a new format that will do it justice.

As part of the new process, shortlisted UK-based startups working in AdTech/MarTech, FinTech, HealthTech, PropTech and Cybersecurity will be invited to take part in Elevator Pitch LIVE and those shortlisted will attend an awards ceremony in London.

Here are the 33 companies joining Tech City UK’s Upscale 2017 scheme

As usual, each winner will receive coverage on Tech City News, plus a professional pitch video to show off what their company is all about.

What to expect

To enter, submit your application before 30th September. Shortlisted applicants from across the UK will be announced on 19th October and invited to participate in a live pitching day in London on 9th November.

The event will see shortlisted startups take to the stage to give a 90-second pitch and take questions from an expert panel of judges, fellow startups and a live audience.

20 finalists from the LIVE day will be invited to attend an awards ceremony in London on 23rd November, where they’ll be in with a chance of winning a series of accolades including the best in their vertical and the Peoples’ Choice Award.

The winners will get to star in their own pitch video, which will be professionally shot and edited by the Tech City News production team.

Why you should apply

Now in its 6th series, our popular Elevator Pitch competition has included the likes of DeliverooHassle.com, YPlanimport.io, and What3Words among its finalists.

It will be fun! In previous years, the winners have shot their pitch videos from the top of the Heron Tower and aboard a speedboat on the Thames.

How to apply

To apply, please can submit your application here or fill out the form below.

Please only apply if your startup operates in either FinTech, PropTech, HealthTech, AdTech/MarTech or Cybersecurity sectors.

Updating your application

We also want to take a moment to thank those of you who have already submitted an application.

We know that things in tech can change – and fast – so if you do have any updates and are working in any of the aforementioned tech verticals, you can amend your application here.

If we don’t hear from you, we’ll assume that you’re happy to proceed with your application as it stands.

…..Good luck!
