LCR Tech Climbers 2019 List reveals region’s top businesses

We are pleased to launch the very first LCR Tech Climbers list, in association with BusinessCloud and LCR Activate. The list showcases and celebrates 27 of Liverpool City Region’s most innovative tech scale-ups, as well as 8 of the most exciting ‘ones to watch’.

Alongside judges from LCR Activate, Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, Liverpool John Moores University and BusinessCloud magazine, members of the Praetura Ventures team chose the finalists from over 80 submissions.

Applicants had to demonstrate that they had sizable operations in Liverpool City Region. The finalists were then chosen based on how unique their technology was, how well they solved problems for their target market, and how well they are disrupting their sector.

The LCR Tech Climbers list demonstrates the vast amount of technological innovation taking place in Liverpool City Region, and highlights some of the region’s fastest growing tech businesses.

The LCR Tech Climbers list is now available online.

Commenting on the launch of the list, Jonathon Clark, Business and Technology Manager at LCR Activate, said:

“We’re excited to launch the first LCR Tech Climbers list and highlight some of the businesses in the region that are using technology in new ways to solve problems creatively. These businesses are the driving force of growth in the local economy and are helping to prove Liverpool City Region as the go-to tech destination in the UK for future job-seekers, investors, and entrepreneurs.”

Ben Hatton, MD, Portfolio at Praetura Ventures, added:

“Praetura Ventures have always sought to support businesses in LCR that are demonstrating outstanding innovation, and we are proud to carry that through to the launch of the LCR Tech Climbers 2019 list. The list is a fantastic opportunity to showcase what the region has to offer and we’re certain it will encourage further engagement with the investment community both regionally and nationally.”
