Aglive invited to participate in the inaugural UK Tech Rocketship Awards programme
Having announced the winners of the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) Rocketship awards in December, Aglive was delighted to receive an invitation to attend the Tech Rocketship UK tour in February.
The Tech Rocketship Awards were open to established scale-ups founded on innovative technology-led solutions, across a wide range of industries who are ready to go global. Companies were selected from a competitive field of 197 entries to secure a highly sought-after place on the Tech Rocketship programme. Aglive was invited as a participant in the “Feeding the Nation” category.

I’d like to congratulate the participates on being selected. This is an invaluable opportunity to gain access to the fifth largest economy in the world and a thriving tech community and we are excited to welcome them to the UK.’
Natalie Black, UK Trade Commissioner for Asia Pacific, said:
‘I am delighted to be back in London this week to personally welcome our Tech Rocketship Award cohort from Australia.
The UK has one of the most vibrant and innovative tech ecosystems in the world backed by our Industrial & Digital strategies. With more VC investment and unicorns than anywhere else in Europe – it’s the natural next step for ambitious Australian and New Zealand tech companies.
We are very excited to be supporting our Tech Rocketship winners and we look forward to their UK success.’
