Birdie joins Tech Nation’s Future Fifty 2024 Cohort 

Alumni of the Future Fifty programme include Starling Bank, Deliveroo, and Revolut

19th March, London: Birdie - the intelligent platform for homecare - has been selected to join Tech Nation’s Future Fifty 2024 cohort alongside an esteemed lineup of innovative businesses from across the UK.

Launched in 2014, The Future Fifty exists to serve and support the UK’s most promising late-stage ventures and represents a carefully curated, UK-wide network of pre-IPO companies with unicorn potential, with its alumni collectively raising over £16.3bn to date. Future Fifty alumni include Starling Bank, Deliveroo, and Revolut. 

Future Fifty’s 2024 cohort of 25 companies representing 17 verticals has raised over £1.3 billion and employs a talent base exceeding 3000. 

Max Parmentier, Birdie’s CEO and Co-Founder, alongside the rest of the 2024 cohort, celebrated their achievements this morning at 10 Downing Street with the Department for Science, Innovation, and Technology, HSBC Innovation Banking, Orrick, Matchtech, and Evelyn Partners. 

Since its launch in 2017, Birdie has been on a mission to transform care through technology, enabling more older adults to thrive at home. In 2023, Birdie was ranked 6th in Deloitte’s top 50 fastest-growing tech companies in the UK, with Birdie’s platform helping support over 1,000 home care providers in the UK to deliver 30 million visits. 

Max Parmentier, CEO and Co-Founder of Birdie said: “We’re delighted to join the Tech Nation Future Fifty programme. Birdie's vision is to radically change how society deals with ageing, knowing that it ‘takes a village’ to care for its oldest. We’re looking forward to collaborating with entrepreneurs from some of Britain’s most promising businesses to fulfil this mission”.  

​​Future Fifty is the only UK-wide accelerator programme tailored to late-stage ventures, and this year’s revamped programme – designed to be more experiential than academic – aims to provide the resources and opportunities required to scale a business to unicorn status. HSBC Innovation Banking, Orrick, Matchtech, and Evelyn Partners have partnered with Tech Nation to support this year’s cohort.

The new Future Fifty also aligns itself with the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology’s mission to make the UK a 'scale-up powerhouse', with Secretary Donelan setting a target for the UK to be home to 50% of all unicorn companies across Europe by 2030.
