Assenty Top 20 Finalist in prestigious Northern Stars UK tech startup competition

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that out of over 200 applications, Assenty is a Top 20 finalist in the prestigious Northern Stars tech startup competition.

Northern Stars is the UK’s most exciting pitch competition to find and showcase the best tech startups in the North of England. It is run by Tech North, a government-backed initiative charged with accelerating the growth of the digital business sector in the North of England.

Now in its third year, the competition sees companies from across the North battle to win the enviable honour of being crowned one of ten Northern Stars. You can read the official announcement on the Tech North website here.

Winners receive a glittering array of prizes including:

  • A trip to TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin (December 2017)
  • Automatic entry into the Northern Tech Awards (March 2018)
  • Participation in investor networking events
  • A ministerial roundtable with the UK government
  • Media and pitch training

And, for the first time, all 20 Northern Stars finalists receive support and promotion from Tech North. Both the 10 winners and the 10 runners up will receive pitch training, a PR campaign and media training as well as personalised support and communications around opportunities for their business.

What’s next? We find out if we made the grade at the Grand Final on 16 November at The Stoller Hall, Manchester.

Tickets are available if you’d like to support us.

Wish us luck – say a prayer if you can. Thank you!

Exciting times!!!
