At BDODrive we work with growing Tech businesses regularly, helping them expand and innovate. Our teams are always looking to learn more about how to support the expansion and growth of the Tech community, which is why we are delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Tech Nation Rising Stars competition. As part of our support we are asking the Tech community to take part in our poll to share insights to help future founders.

We believe that a key characteristic that all entrepreneurs need, is creativity. To celebrate the creative success of the 2019 Rising Stars, we sent this year’s semi-finalists a box of Lego. We asked them to build their brand using what was inside. Once built the finalists shared their images on Twitter, tagging @BDODriveUK, for a chance to help us donate to a charity of their choice. We loved seeing what these creative minds got up to.

About the competition

Tech Nation are creating a national network connecting ambitious entrepreneurs across the UK. So founders and start-ups can learn from each other. They are passionate about empowering ambitious tech entrepreneurs and helping them to grow.

The Rising Stars competition aims to find the UK’s most innovative, early-stage tech start-ups, with a prize package designed to help accelerate growth. The competition is split into two events. Finalists will need to pitch their businesses to a judging panel. Winners will then get the opportunity to connect with mentors, investors and influencers, and significantly raise their profile and growth.
