Leeds based tech company accepted onto “prestigious” programme as it announces partnership with Tech Nation

A Leeds based EdTech company has announced a partnership with Tech Nation having been accepted onto the prestigious Upscale programme

Glean, is an inclusive learning technology app that empowers students of all abilities to take meaningful audio notes with a proven note taking process.

The company now supports thousands of learners at over 500 universities and colleges, including the world’s most prestigious institutions. Users have reported grade increases as high as C- to A.

Upscale is an established 6-month programme aimed at accelerating the growth of successful UK scaleups. Delivered by the team at Tech Nation, and entering its sixth year, the programme has built a network of over 160 alumni including Monzo, Deliveroo, Bulb, Improbable, Just Eat and Bloom & Wild.

Dave Tucker, founder and CEO of Glean, said: “Being selected as one of the thirty-one companies to join Upscale 7.0 means a lot to me personally. Our journey has not been a straightforward one.

“As a bootstrapped business based in Leeds we have not necessarily had the same exposure as many other tech companies in the UK. For me, reaching this milestone is recognition of what the team has achieved so far.

“Moreover, it not only creates national awareness of both Glean and its mission, but also of the emerging and growing Leeds tech scene which I am proud to be a part of.

Dave continued: “I’m also excited for people across the business to receive additional support and meet peers in other high-growth companies which brings exposure to new ideas and ways of doing things.

“And for me, being a participant within a community of fellow founders and CEOs of similar organisations through which I can find support and feedback is going to be invaluable. The importance of community cannot be understated and I am sincerely looking forward to being part of a new one.”
