Tech Nation has launched Rising Stars - the newest and most exciting pitch competition for early-stage businesses.

Building on the success of Northern Stars (run by Tech North), the competition is now going national to discover the best tech startups from every corner of the UK - from Cornwall to Inverness and everywhere in between. The reward for the winners? An exclusive prize package designed to take your business to the next level, including access to leading mentors and investors, pitch training, a big hitting press campaign and much more.
