Cyan Forensics has been recognised as one of the UK’s most promising tech companies with its selection to participate in Tech Nation’s exclusive Upscale 7.0 programme.
Cyan is one of only two firms from Scotland to be chosen for the seventh iteration of the series which includes 31 participants in total. Upscale is designed to support mid-stage (Series A), fast-scaling tech companies from around the UK.
Ian Stevenson, CEO of Cyan, said: “We’re looking forward to participating in Tech Nation’s Upscale growth programme, and collaborating with and learning from other fast-growing, scale-up companies.
“Collaboration is a cornerstone of our business – we cannot achieve our vision by working in isolation. Cyan is proud to be part of Upscale and the coming months offer a unique opportunity to progress our growth journey together, supported by Tech Nations’ experts’ team and be part of a community that share similar challenges and aspirations as Cyan.
“People are at the heart of our growth plans, and we’re committed to building a world-class team to help us deliver groundbreaking products, helping create a world where no harmful digital content can be easily hidden or shared.”
Companies on the programme receive over 60 hours of support at world-class coaching sessions, attend networking events with key stakeholders, peers, corporates and investors. They also have access to a range of online resources, designed to tackle fundamental scaling challenges around culture, talent, international expansion and financing.
Liam Ward, Upscale programme lead at Tech Nation, commented: “We’re excited to support Cyan help law enforcement, social media and cloud companies find and block harmful content from paedophiles and terrorists.
“The impact these ambitious, fast-growing tech companies’ innovative solutions are already having on people’s lives across so many industries is evident from their combined revenue of over £90 million, and it’s fantastic to see investors taking note of the potential these tech companies have not only to scale but to transform every corner of society for the better.”
