Announcing the 20 startups on our Q3 Hot List

Updated: Nov 22

At Spice, our mission is to develop the most efficient tools and resources to get the best startups and scaleups funded, faster, and we’re thrilled to announce the startups featured on our Q3 Hot List, one of the initiatives we run to help high potential startups close funding faster, so they can get back to building.


We’re fortunate to support thousands of startups each year through our events and programmes, many of whom go on to close significant rounds. By design, our work is typically high-touch, meaning we get to work closely with all different types of startups, in all different types of sectors. Having such close proximity to high performers is what helps us create these quarterly lists, and might give you a few ideas on what we’re working on in the future (more on that here). The vast majority of the startups featured in our Q3 Hot List

were in the top 5% of the 350 startups that went through our Seed Sprint programme with SeedLegals for demonstrating exceptional week-on-week growth.


All startups listed are actively raising a pre-seed or seed round, have provided a one pager / deck, key growth metrics, revenue information, round information and contact details. Investors can access the full list with growth, revenue and fundraise information, by completing this form. Please note, all data is provided by the founders.


We have never charged startups for any support and we do not take intro fees or commissions on any deals done from information provided on the Hot List.


*Our one ask* This is an MVP for an upcoming launch, (find out more at thehotbed.co), so feedback on startups, introductions and data points are enormously helpful and appreciated.
