The Imagine Cup UK Finals 2017 are only a day away and we are very excited to announce the UK Finalists for this year’s competition.



Thank you to everyone who entered this year.


The standards were higher than ever, probably because of the whopping 100,000 at stake for the worldwide winners. We had over 400 people sign up to the UK Imagine Cup competition and our team had the hard job of narrowing it down to just 10 teams. They have all already achieved so much by making it this far, but we can’t wait to see them in action.


Here are our 10 UK Finalists…
