Mishcon de Reya has now opened online applications for the next wave of the M:Tech programme, offering free strategic legal and commercial advice and mentoring to early-stage tech businesses during the critical first stages of growth.
The first M:Tech cohort from 2019 comprises eight UK businesses from a range of sectors and industries including eSports, retail, healthcare, financial services, blockchain and education:
Over the past six months, these companies have been working closely with their dedicated M:Tech mentor on day-to-day legal and commercial issues, as well as receiving advice from specialist lawyers in the Firm across the corporate, IP, finance, tax, employment and regulatory practices. The businesses have also been given access to Mishcon's non-legal specialists in the fields of data protection, cyber security, blockchain and data science, as well as to Mishcon's network of contacts and connections.
Andrew Wolfin, Corporate Partner and M:Tech lead at Mishcon de Reya, comments, "We are greatly enjoying working with the eight exciting and dynamic early-stage tech businesses in our first cohort. Whilst we have been helping them navigate the challenges they're facing in the current climate, we've also been learning a great deal from them too. We have been so impressed with the passion, commitment and innovation of the founders and can’t wait to see what the next cohort brings."
