The deadline is fast approaching for company nominations to be received for consideration in the inaugural LCR Tech Climbers 2019 list.

The number of nominations already received for the list, which is being run in partnership by LCR Activate, Praetura Ventures and BusinessCloud, is rapidly approaching the 100 mark.

The closing date for submissions to be received for growing tech scale-ups is next Friday (July 5th).

SMEs can put themselves forward or be nominated for the list which will recognise those businesses achieving high growth as the result of an innovative and creative use of technology.

 Make an application to the LCR Tech Climbers 2019 list:

To nominate businesses must fill out a short entry questionnaire and ensure they can demonstrate significant operations in Liverpool City Region. In addition, they must meet at least one of the following pre-qualifying requirements:

  • Development of Intellectual property (IP) or proprietary technology;
  • Provision of a unique tech solution to a problem;
  • Disruption of their sector.

All submitted entries will be put to an expert panel including representatives from LCR Activate, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, BusinessCloud magazine and Praetura Ventures.

Successful entrants to the LCR Tech Climbers 2019 list will be invited to an unveiling event to take place on 3rd October 2019, 5-8pm at Sensor City.

BusinessCloud editor Chris Maguire said: “I went through the nominations already received over the weekend and as well as the household names you’d expect to see, there were some real little gems in there too.

“We know Liverpool City Region has got many disruptive tech firms and the LCR Tech Climbers 2019 list is the opportunity to shine a light on them.”
