We’re thrilled to announce that Biosite is joining Future Fifty in 2018. The Future Fifty programme from Tech City UK has chosen 26 new late stage companies and Biosite is part of that carefully selected group.

Future Fifty only accepts the UK’s brightest and most innovative tech businesses. Just some of companies are already involved with the programme are Just Eat, Deliveroo, Secret Escapes and Zoopla, and Biosite is proud to be amongst that special alumni.

Future Fifty gives 26 fast-growing companies immediate access to a valuable peer network, expert-led classes and workshops designed to take their businesses to the next levels, and a higher profile amongst the wider tech ecosystem. Future Fifty companies represent some of the country’s most exciting growth stage tech businesses, while changing the sectors that they operate in fundamentally.

The 26 late-stage companies this year are joining a larger network of Future Fifty companies and alumni, which now totals 126.

Gerard Grech, CEO, Tech City UK, says, “In the tech sector, small and growing businesses are providing high-quality jobs, employment to more than a million people and great career paths. Future Fifty helps the UK’s most promising businesses accelerate their growth and shows how Tech City UK, soon to be Tech Nation, can connect ambitious people and companies across the country.”

Li Wang, Managing Director at Biosite, says, “The adoption of technological advances could transform the construction industry, but this can only happen if the market is fully aware of what options it has. We’re extremely happy to be a part of this programme to help spread the word about what technology can do, working with other similar-minded companies to increase awareness and bring about positive change.”
