Sparkbox wins Tech Nation's "Rising Stars"!
Updated: Jun 3
"10 winners represent the most exciting and innovative early-stage tech companies in the country"
February was a busy month for Sparkbox, but the highlight for us was the Tech Nation Rising Stars Grand Final where we were named one of the most promising early-stage tech startups in the UK!
Rising Stars is an annual competition and this year's finalists included incredible startups working across sectors including fintech, tech for good, health tech, and retail tech. We pitched to a panel of judges that included Adam Kamani, Co-Founder of PrettyLittleThing, Amali de Alwis, MD at Microsoft for Startups UK, Ed Prior, Tech Investment Banker at GP Bullhound, Jacqueline de Rojas, President of techUK, Denise Xifara, Co-Founder of GMG Ventures and Michael Stothard, Editor at Sifted.
In our pitch, we spoke about the opportunity price optimisation presents for retailers, how we're solving the problem with machine learning, and some of the great results we've delivered for our fast fashion clients.
We’re thrilled to be among this impressive group of startups and we’re particularly proud to represent the exciting new technology emerging in the retail sector. Thank you to the judging panel, sponsors, and Tech Nation for your support. Congratulations to all finalists!
