Krucial nominated in Gbx Best in British Tech Awards

Krucial (formely R3-IoT) is a nominee in the GBx Best in British Tech awards. 

Krucial has been shortlisted in the GBx Best in British Tech 2021 awards! 

Celebrating the founders and companies exemplifying the ‘best in British technology’, the US-based awards recognise British start-ups making a global impact through innovating and fast-tracking their business growth – all whilst contributing to their community. 

Krucial is a nominee in the UPSTART category which recognises UK/US-headquartered companies with <$5m investment to date, and who have international growth ambitions. 

The nomination follows an impressive growth period for Scottish-based Krucial, as it gears up for international expansion after closing a $4.3m seed investment round led by US-based VC Space Capital, joined by the Scottish National Investment Bank. 

Allan Cannon, Co-Founder and CEO of Krucial said: 

“We are delighted to be recognised in the GBx Best in British Tech awards. Two years ago, when we had our sights set on international growth, we joined GBx as part of a trade mission with the Department of International Trade to Silicon Valley – so it is fantastic to see how far the company has come! 

“This award nomination is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Krucial team. I am excited about the future global market opportunities for the team as we enter our next phase of growth – commercially launching later this year, doubling headcount and establishing operations in North America.” 

Winners announced on 23 September 

Voting is open to GBx community members and winners will be announced at the GBx members’ Gala on 23 September. We wish all the companies and founders nominated in this years’ GBx awards the very best of luck!
