Advai has been named a regional finalist in Tech Nation's Rising Stars competition for 2024. This prestigious recognition highlights our innovation and potential within the UK's dynamic tech sector. As a regional finalist, we join other companies selected for their exceptional promise and ability to scale.

This achievement not only underscores Advai's technological advancements but also provides invaluable opportunities for growth, including masterclasses, networking with leading investors, and enhanced visibility within the tech community. This accomplishment places Advai on the path to compete in the semi-finals, aiming for a spot among the top 10 national winners​.

As a bootstrapped business we're fairly new to the Venture Capital and pitch deck world, but this was a great opportunity to try explain what we do and where we're going in 4 slides!

As the founders were abroad in the States at the RSA Conference and The AI Expo for National Competitiveness, it fell to product lead Ben Fawcett to pull up his sleeves and represent the company.

Huge thanks to Tech Nation for putting the show on and to the judges for offering some incredibly useful feedback.

It was a fantastic learning experience and we were happy to be involved!
