Bristol-based Spherics Technology Ltd, which aims to help millions of organisations reach net zero by 2030, is one of the national winners of Tech Nation's Rising Stars 3.0.

Now in its third year, Rising Stars is the UK’s only national early-stage tech scaleup competition. It’s designed to help the most exciting early-stage tech companies take their business to the next level and become the world-leading tech companies of the future.

Spherics Technology was founded by George Sandilands, Mike Chatziapostolou and Ciaran Wood. The business aims to helps companies understand their climate impact. The Spheric system integrates with established software packages, and tracks and visualises a company’s carbon footprint in real-time. It makes custom suggestions on how to reduce impact, matching data trends with research and climate science, and finally offsetting any unavoidable carbon emissions.

Stephen Kelly, Chair, Tech Nation, said: “I was blown away by the quality of finalists this year. The Rising Stars  are great examples of the strength of the UK tech ecosystem. The winners highlight that innovation, determination and ambition in this fast growing sector can be found right across the UK. What the Rising Stars competition, and indeed Tech Nation, does is provide a platform to showcase these exciting and innovative companies.”
