Our three founders: Ben Crowther, Jack Farmer and Charlie Guy, have been shortlisted for the Agri-tech, Food-tech and Clean-tech awards at the inaugural BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards.

It is brilliant to see our team being recognised for the fruits of their labour. It’s been full steam ahead the past few months. We’ve been to Amsterdam to pitch at the Green Challenge, entertained the BBC and delivered on our first sales.  We’re looking forward to expanding our reach and working with more farmers in 2019.

The BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards celebrates and champions the entrepreneurial journeys of those who create, disrupt and innovate within the UK’s rapidly changing tech landscape.

Charlie Guy, co-founder, said “We’re proud to be included in such a diverse group tech founders from all over the UK. LettUs Grow is entering an exciting time of development, working with forward-thinking farmers and a talented team to find food focussed solutions.”

Founder of the BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards, Francesa James, said: “We’ve been blown away by the quality of applicants received this year and believe our finalists are a great demonstration of the entrepreneurial talent in the UK’s tech space.

“Behind every great tech business is a great entrepreneur, and behind them is an inspiring story. These are the people who create, disrupt and innovate. That’s what we’re looking to celebrate and champion with the BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards.”

BMW i’s Sophie Chiappe said: “The finalists showcase the innovation challenges that businesses face and the technological advancements that will lead the way. Technology has to be at the forefront of business development. It is so important to celebrate this innovation and the individuals driving this forward.

“We are delighted to be partnered with the UK Tech Founder Awards and celebrate the entrepreneurial stories behind the individuals changing the future of the technological landscape.”

The winners of the first BMW i UK Tech Founder Awards will be announced at the Awards Final on Tuesday 27th November in London.
