Our story so far

Celebrating scaling tech businesses across the UK

Tech Climbers is an annual list published by Active Profile in partnership with BusinessCloud to showcase the top performing IP rich, product-led technology businesses in growth regions across the UK.

First launched in 2019, Tech Climbers created an inaugural list and celebration in Liverpool City Region with founding partners (Growth Platform) and the Activate business support programme. Since then, the project has welcomed a range of partners including tech investors, local government inward investment and academic institutions.

The Tech Climbers mission is to showcase and celebrate scaling tech businesses in growth regions across the UK.

  • "Our city region is home to some of the most innovative and trailblazing businesses in the UK tech industry. This initiative brings those businesses to the forefront of conversation and showcases what our region has to offer."
    Tony Corby
    Sector Manager, Leeds City Region Combined Authority
  • "Tech Climbers really brings to life what we were trying to do; shout about the great innovative ‘product-led’ tech businesses in the City Region."
    Helen Cross
    Digital and Creative Sector Lead, Growth Platform, Liverpool City Region
  • "Tech Climbers is an exciting collaboration, showcasing one of the biggest drivers of our local economies - technology. We profile the ambitious people behind the products, teams and technology and create a view of region-growth."
    Anna Heyes
    Managing Director, Active Profile
