Five years of celebrating, connecting and propelling British Tech startups.
From hundreds of applications, down to five finalists and one ultimate pitch in Barcelona, we have our 2019 winner. Congratulations to Hummingbird Technologies, who has taken away the coveted title of Best British Tech Startup 2019. This artificial intelligence business overcame fierce competition and impressed the judges with their business’s innovation, market potential, and momentum.
Based in London, Hummingbird Technologies use imagery and data analytics from UAV, satellite and plane technology, together with machine learning and computer vision techniques, to provide farmers with high resolution crop maps.
A massive congratulations to all of the finalists who came with us on this journey. Their presence at Barcelona’s Four Years From Now at Mobile World Congress did not go unnoticed, with exposure to over 7,000 CEO participants and 3,500 international media and analysts. With previous finalists raising over £100m in the past five years, we’re sure we’ll be seeing big things from these businesses in the future.
Since launching BBTS in 2013, this annual competition has been propelling forward the game changers, the disruptors and tech titans of tomorrow.
BBTS finalists receive an incredible opportunity to profile their businesses to senior corporate decision makers, investors and the media. This includes presenting their business at Mobile World Congress (MWC) and Four Years from Now (4YFN) in Barcelona, February 2019 - the world’s largest annual mobile industry gathering.
Applications for BBTS 2019 are now closed. Thanks to all those who entered.
