Our 11 Silicon Gorge Autumn 2022 winners have been announced! Following the finals this week, these 12 startups are set to pitch at the Investor Showcase on 10 November.

These companies have been curated after a 3-stage selection process by experienced network and investor judges, all organised as part of the Investment Activator Programme.

The final showcase will be in front of angel investors, early stage VCs and also enablers and advisors of investment, and will take part at Huboo’s Bristol city centre offices as part of a wider Investor Day, so an ideal networking opportunity for those looking to raise.

As an aside Huboo raised £60m in 2021, and their founder Martin Bysh was one of the first Silicon Gorge pitchers back in 2015, so we’re keen to see how these companies progress.

This year’s companies cover everything from interactive live streaming to waste technology to synthetic meat development and sustainable packaging, so it makes for an interesting day!

While there are a limited number of spaces to attend, any investors interested in attending the Silicon Gorge Pitching event on 10th November should contact iap@techspark.co to be added to the invite list.

Pitching for investment between £150,000 and £2m, the following companies (listed in alphabetical order) will be joining us for the Investor Showcase.
