This year’s Elevator Pitch LIVE competition takes place today, so we thought we’d tell you a little bit more about the exciting AdTech/MarTech startups pitching this morning.
The competition – our annual quest to find the top rising stars in UK technology – is sponsored by Kreston Reeves, Cisco, Stirling Ackroyd, EY and Digital Radish and will see 15 shortlisted startups pitch to a room full of entrepreneurs, investors and industry heavyweights.
Here are the top three UK MarTech/AdTech startups pitching later today:
