U.K. technology scale up experts Tech Nation has selected Featurespace™, the leading provider of Enterprise Financial Crime prevention software, for its inaugural “Tech Nation International Growth Programme“, which is part of the Digital Trade Network, an initiative commissioned by the U.K. Government to help innovative tech companies access trade and investment opportunities and forge new partnerships across Asia Pacific.
Thirty companies were selected for the program, which is broken into individual cohorts focusing on Australia, Singapore, and South Korea and Japan. Featurespace is one of six companies chosen for the South Korea and Japan cohort.
“The U.K.’s tech sector, driven by fast growing tech scale ups, is already growing 6 times faster than the rest of the U.K. economy combined – the U.K. tech start up and scale up ecosystem is valued at almost $600bn and the U.K. has produced 80 unicorns,” said Gerard Grech, CEO of Tech Nation. “Thinking globally is now vital for UK tech and Tech Nation. Eighty percent of our latest Upscale cohort cited international expansion as their number one challenge, so this International Programme in Japan is key to the next stage of U.K. tech growth.”
