Manchester scaleups selected for Tech Nation’s leading growth programme

Manchester based Arctic Shores and Pimberly selected for Tech Nation’s prestigious Upscale 5.0 programme, for the UK’s most exciting and fastest growing scaleup tech companies.

Safe Hammad, Co-founder & CTO, Arctic Shores commented: “Arctic Shores is solving the problem of bias and poor candidate experience in recruitment and career development whilst helping companies find the best fit for their job roles. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but we don’t have all the answers! As we enter a period where we rapidly scale our business, we face challenges on several levels, such as increasing headcount and market share whilst trying to retain the values, diversity and passion that got us here. We’re excited to be part of the Upscale 5.0 programme which will support us in addressing these challenges in a holistic way, and not simply focus on a single aspect such as international growth or sales. We also look forward to sharing stories with others on the programme who are at a similar stage to us now!”

Martin Balaam, Founder & CEO, Pimberly commented: “The Pimberly team are very proud and excited to be included on the Tech Nation Upscale 5.0 and especially so to be flying the flag for Manchester and the North West. We have had an incredible journey from start-up, first round of institutional funding and blasting through our first $1m ARR. We have so many things to do and learn, it’s such a privilege to work with the UK’s smartest tech scale-ups. Huge thanks to our amazingly talented team at Pimberly, for our awesome customers & investors and for the Tech Nation team for selecting us”.
