Aline Santos, Unilever - TNBT

Fuelled by unprecedented marketing, technology and consumer change, there’s never been such great demand from brands, agencies and media owners to work with tech start-ups.

For the fourth year running, we have teamed up with Unilever to run The Next Big Thing - a search for the industry’s top emerging tech talent.

We’re giving start-ups the chance to pitch for the chance to win a Unilever pilot and the prestigious The Next Big Thing award. After a call out, mentoring day and selection process, 15 start-ups will pitch at ad:tech Performance & Innovation over the two days. 1 start-up will wow the panel of judges and 700 industry players to walk away with an amazing new client and prestigious prize.


Applications are now closed.
