Managing Director of Novus Capital and Britain’s Got Startups event organiser, Jenson Brook, comments: “It is no secret that businesses outside of London struggle to secure the early-stage capital that they need to take their companies to the next level. It is our mission through the Britain’s Got Startups event series to change that.

“Bringing together innovative founders from start-ups and scale-ups with local, national and international investors means we can provide a potentially life-changing platform for some of the brightest and most disruptive organisations in Surrey.

“We encourage any business that wants to super-charge their start-up and scale-up journey to apply. It is free to send a submission and could lead to these companies getting the investment and support that they need.”

Following the successful pilot of Britain’s Got Startups in Manchester during 2023, the event series attracted 117 applications, resulting in 24 shortlisted semi-finalists, 12 finalists and 50 investor follow-ups. It is anticipated these numbers will more than double during 2024.
