It is our pleasure to announce that we have been selected by Tech Nation as a Rising Stars 4.0 regional winner! This UK-wide competition is a platform to showcase the best of UK start-up innovation, across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Kelli Fairbrother, our co-founder and CEO commented:
“It is an absolute honour for xigxag to be recognised as one of the hottest tech start-ups in the UK. Our team have worked incredibly hard to create the first ever listen-and-read concept, the best-ever digital reading app and content platform in the industry.  We are delighted to be rewarded for offering UK consumers the only exciting, home-grown alternative to big tech. It is not just a win for us but also for the publishers, authors and partners who have supported our innovation and believe in our vision.  Audio is a massive global trend, and we’re excited to help the publishing industry realise its full potential.” 

Mark Chaplin, our co-founder and CTO added:
“It certainly is a fantastic ending to xigxag’s year.  We have made incredible progress building and improving the xigxag app and underlying tech-enabled content platform.  We’ve expanded our development team and recently celebrated 12K downloads. The audiobook market is said to be in the middle of the perfect storm for growth. This accolade will propel us further towards accelerating xigxag from start up to scale up.”
