From September 12 to 20, the start-ups will have the chance to meet with major players in the US market in a bid for sales, funding and collaboration opportunities.
The four tech businesses chosen to represent the UK in Silicon Valley are:
- Meniga – A fintech start-up providing personal finance software for European banks and financial institutions
- Metail – A fashion technology company enabling consumers to try on clothes online by uploading three basic body measurements
- PCA Predict – An address validation platform that helps boost business efficiency by quickly completing consumer’s addresses
- Stream Technologies – The company develops IoT-X – a connectivity enablement, management and billing platform
Dennis Moynihan, UK director of EIT Digital, commented: “The UK has a huge wealth of smart, savvy and innovative digital scale-ups and seeing such a good representation of British businesses selected for the Silicon Valley programme is great news.
“We’ve already seen impressive results from the startups that participated in SEC2SV 2015 […] I expect equally impressive results from this year’s cohort.”
