Northern Stars is a pitch competition that seeks to identify and showcase the best tech startups in the North of England. We do this through an online application process, supported by a series of Regional Pitch events, culminating in a Grand Final where 10 winning companies are chosen by a high-profile panel of judges.
We want to hear from early-stage tech and digital startups from across the tech sector and of all shapes and sizes, working on everything from AI, VR and IoT, to drones, HealthTech, EdTech, Games and more!
