Welcome to a special Black Friday/Cyber Monday edition of Notwics Connecting People, where we showcase and celebrate some of the very best Technology Scale-Ups in the UK and Europe, that have continued to succeed during Covid-19 times.
These businesses are specifically focused on AI, Deep-Tech and Blockchain Technologies, and 2020 has seen them all fast become champions in their respective verticals.
Each of the 8 founders will provide a Co-Vid (Co-operative Video) overview of their successes, technological capabilities and innovative excellence.
Should any of the stories resonate, you can “click to connect” with any of the founders and get together. Access to this Co-Vid Show-reel will remain until Boxing day and just like Netflix, you can watch as many times you like.
We hope you enjoy this Black Friday special edition of Notwics Connecting People and we’d like to thank our new sponsors, leading law firm CMS and top UK Bank, Lloyds Bank for their excellent support for the ecosystem. Also thanks to Maddyness UK too, our media partner continuing to support.
