Applied AI is Tech Nation’s first growth programme for Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help the UK’s most promising founders who are applying AI in practical areas and to create real-world impact. This year, the Applied AI 2.0 programme received 179 applications from all over the UK. Having gone through a rigorous and competitive process, techspert.io was named as one of the 32 companies joining the programme along with some of the best AI scaleups in the UK across a variety of sectors.  

The six-month programme forms part of the UK Government’s AI Sector Deal, announced in 2019 to unlock the social and economic benefits of AI, and is based on peer-to-peer support and the shared experience of later-stage founders. It’s designed to champion and support the UK’s leading AI scaleups and focuses on providing founders and leaders of the sector with invaluable skills, a powerful network – including investors and potential clients – and the ability to implement changes that will help their companies grow. 

“The UK must take every opportunity to nurture scalable, globally-competitive, homegrown AI companies that solve real problems and have far-reaching impacts on the productivity potential of the economy,” commented Harry Rhys Davies, AI Programme Lead at Tech Nation. 

“The Applied AI growth programme aims to do exactly this, taking 32 of the UK’s most exciting AI scaleups, and through peer-to-peer learning and mentoring removing many of the unique barriers to growth that companies in this sector face. Backed by leading VCs and led by an exceptionally talented group of founders, this cohort of companies is primed to make an impact.” 

David Holden-White, techspert.io’s Co-Founder and Managing Director, said: “We're incredibly excited to be on board with Tech Nation. The growth of the alumni speaks for itself and we look forward to working with Tech Nation to boost our growth trajectory.”
