Red Flag Alert wins place on Tech Climbers list

We are thrilled to announce that Red Flag Alert has been named among the top innovators in Manchester’s bustling tech scene and has been awarded a place on the Tech Climbers Manchester 2023 list. The prestigious list was released on Tuesday 17th October at an exclusive event at Peak HQ in Manchester.  

Celebrating the growing stars that have climbed the ladder of success within the region, being listed as part of the award is not only a recognition of Red Flag Alert’s outstanding achievements, but also a testament to the bright future that lies ahead for tech companies within Manchester.   

With the recent release of the Greater Manchester Tech Climbers 2023 list, Red Flag Alert were proud to stand alongside the other top-performing technology-led businesses who were also showcased on the night. Judges considered nominations from businesses which were headquartered in Greater Manchester and are dedicated to providing unique tech solutions to an existing problem, creating disruption in their target sectors, and hiring top talent within the region. 

Celebrating innovation

On the night of the first ever list reveal within the Manchester area, 150 members of the start up and scale up community across the region, gathered to celebrate the outstanding achievements, strong growth, and innovation for businesses across the region. Red Flag Alert were proud to stand alongside other top-performing technology-led businesses who were also showcased on the night.

The following 19 companies made the main list - AeroCloud; Boodil; Digitech Oasis; FOTENIX; Holiferm; Housr; Immersify Education; My First Five Years; Orka; Partful; PixelMax; Red Flag Alert; Sparkbox; SteamaCo; Symple; Veo; Versori; Vulse; & Vypr. 

A total of seven companies were included in the 'ones to watch' list. They were - Arcube; CARMA; Cytix; Financielle; SoSquared; Spotlight Pathology; and Zally®. 

Congratulations to all of the other businesses that were featured this year!  

The future looks bright  

Our MD, Richard West, was also one of the speakers on the night of the event, alongside other senior leaders from the various tech businesses.

Richard said, “The level of talent here tonight is a testament to Manchester’s vibrant tech ecosystem and the cutting-edge solutions that the start-ups and scale-ups bring to our growing region. Red Flag Alert are proud to stand amongst them all with a spot on the prestigious Tech Climbers list, the first of its kind for Manchester.

The Tech industry is fast paced, with a rapidly evolving landscape and a need for innovation and adaptability. Staying at the forefront of technological advancements isn’t always easy, and requires the right team, knowledgeable advisors and the best financial support – which isn’t as readily available as it once was!  

I thank the Tech Climbers for recognising and drawing attention to the growing pool of dynamic talent and remarkable achievements within Manchester, and proving that not everything has to be London-centric. Manchester’s tech ecosystem can be just as ground-breaking and has a bright future.”
