We’re in the 250…

ACCELERATE 250

It’s going to be an interesting week next week for the folks at Screach.

In seven days time, we’ll be travelling down to Liverpool to attend Accelerate 2013, a festival devoted to some of the fastest-growing businesses in the UK.

Screach is one of 250 growing businesses that have been hand-picked to attend the event, which has been championed by Sir Terry Leahy and Lord Young. The Accelerate 250 brings together businesses making a splash in fields ranging from technology to finance, food and fashion.

Speakers include Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, Lastminute.com co-founder Martha Lane Fox and Tech City UK CEO Joanna Shields.

Former Tesco CEO Sir Terry Leahy said: “It’s our belief that Britain’s prosperity in the 21 century global economy is going to be built on the success of high-potential, fast-growth businesses.”

On Tuesday, we’ll also be chatting to some of the UK’s best universities at the NUS Trade Conference and Exhibition at Birmingham’s NEC. We believe that universities could do excellent things with the ScreachTV platform, so we’re heading to the Midlands to show them all it can do.

If you’re popping down next week, wander over and say hi. We’ll be at stand 116 throughout the day…
