Bristol tech wins in Tech Nation Rising Stars


Bristol-based Spherics Technology Ltd, which aims to help millions of organisations reach net zero by 2030, is one of the national winners of Tech Nation‘s Rising Stars 3.0.

Now in its third year, Rising Stars is the UK’s only national early-stage tech scaleup competition. It’s designed to help the most exciting early-stage tech companies take their business to the next level and become the world-leading tech companies of the future.
