Three Scottish companies are among the finalists in the Tech Nation Rising Stars competition, the UK network for technology entrepreneurs.

Drinkly, Neatebox and Talking Medicines will be hoping to impress an audience of investors in London on Wednesday.

It is the only national early-stage tech scale-up competition in the UK and is designed to showcase the most exciting companies at Seed to pre-Series A funding from all areas of the country. 

The final is the culmination of a nationwide search that saw the 33 regional winners revealed in November, followed by the semi-final in Manchester last month where a panel of judges whittled the finalists down to 20 companies.

At the Grand Final, the winners will be required to pitch to a panel of industry leading judges, and in front of an audience of more than 200 of the top venture capitalists, founders and corporates in the UK.

The judging panel includes techUK President, Jacqueline de Rojas, PrettyLittleThing co-founder Adam Kamani, and MD of Microsoft for Startups UK Amali de Alwis.
