What do cyber safeguarding app SafeToNet, digital healthcare service Babylon Health, location app What3Words and prescription delivery business Echo have in common? They’re all alumni of our Best British Tech Startup (BBTS) competition.
The pace and scale of innovation and ingenuity we continue to see is remarkable. Now in our fifth year we continue our search to find the Best British Tech Startup 2019.
We are looking for tech startups that have innovative, proven technologies, robust business models, the ability to demonstrate traction in their activities, and the potential to scale.
