Two northern tech businesses have landed a spot on this year’s prestigious AG Elevate mentoring scheme, from blue chip international law firm Addleshaw Goddard.

Manchester’s DeliveryApp provides an environmentally sustainable courier solution, while Lancaster-based Miralis Data’s Fuuse product is a clean tech transport business with an operating system which maximises the use of EV chargers.

The two northern businesses join a total of 13 businesses from across the UK on the fast-track 10-month programme, which is designed to advance tech businesses in all sectors through legal challenges that arise as they scale-up.

Elvan Hussein and David Anderson, partners and co-programme leads at Addleshaw Goddard, said: “The interest in this year’s AG Elevate programme was greater than ever, and we were delighted with the response and with the final 13 businesses who will participate this year. The focus of the programme has expanded as the acceleration of tech integration in all sectors and all aspects of our professional and personal lives speeds up. We know the challenges these businesses face and our specialist mentors are ready to help them negotiate an ever-changing landscape and thrive.”

Designed, developed and delivered by AG’s expert lawyers, the flexible programme has now supported around 50 businesses since it launched in 2017. It helps businesses tackle the variety of legal and other challenges they may face when scaling up by providing access to legal advice, legal and business mentors and networks across the globe.

The selected businesses all have existing plans for high-growth and have received external funding.

Over the 10-month programme the chosen businesses will have access to legal mentors, legal advice and industry networks to help them elevate and grow their business. The 2022 cohort will also receive bespoke documentation designed by Addleshaw Goddard, access to a collaborative online hub and the opportunity to work alongside like-minded business professionals in the tech ecosystem to help elevate and grow their firms.
