Tangibly helping BF with their digital and technological ideas.

Telescopic are digital transformation experts who solve complex technical problems and develop exciting digital products for semi-public bodies, the third sector and the leisure and hospitality industry.

Telescopic have seen first-hand how the wrong tech or the wrong usage of tech can hamper growth; tech that doesn’t address unique business challenges or slot effortlessly into an organisation. Putting people at the heart of everything they do, they make sure that the right technology is accessible, easy to use and genuinely helpful, unlocking sustainable growth.

They love working with like-minded people who share values in wanting to make the world a better, fairer place. They want to support people, communities and the planet, and this drive can be seen in their partnerships and the things they do, from helping to protect the environment to supporting diversity in tech.

Telescopic have signed a two-year partnership with British Fencing as an Official Technology Supplier, which will see them rebuild the Explore Fencing App and offer strategic advisory support to BF’s continued developments in the digital and tech space.

This official partnership is a development of an already strong relationship. Telescopic are excited by the ideas, programmes, and work that BF do and are keen to go the extra mile to help in the lead-up to the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Telescopic have become a valued partner in BF’s wider commercial partner and sponsorship programme. The deal is part cash and part value in kind. It will see BF complete digital projects much faster, and any revenue will go back into BF and the development of fencing in the UK.

Rita Mantler, Co-Founder and CTO of Telescopic, says,

“We can’t wait to take our working partnership with BF to the next level, helping them achieve their commercial aims sustainably by getting under the skin of the organisation and providing the right technical expertise and digital products to drive progress. We also wanted to partner with BF because of its impact on communities and young people. BF is helping kids from all backgrounds build their confidence, learn a new skill and have fun through fencing. We’re proud to play a part in BF’s growth as digital transformation experts, and we can’t wait to continue providing digital products and services that help our partner achieve their goals.”

James Craig, Commercial Director at British Fencing, says,

“At BF, we are blessed to have multiple suppliers that help bring to life our vision and mission as an organisation. There are some suppliers, however, with which we connect more deeply. We found this to be the case with Rita and her team at Telescopic, especially at a time when we went to find a supplier because we needed help the most. They have shown an incredible ability to provide honest feedback in a respectful way, and to provide a level of service that has kept our work on track. Moreover, they have helped to drive the overall excellence of what we are trying to achieve at BF. I cannot recommend a discovery call with her team enough so that others can see the attentive, frank, and purposeful insights that could help them to develop their own digital and tech plans. I look forward to introducing Telescopic more widely into the sport eco-system in this country and showcasing the work that we do together more widely.”


*About the British Fencing Partnership and Sponsorship Programme

Being a Partner or Sponsor to British Fencing means that the relationship has been formalised where there is mutual benefit to both parties. The partner or sponsor commits to value in kind or paid sponsorship in relation to the commercial value, services and/or products that British Fencing provide. There are a select number of partners which have been carefully chosen to create a defined and purposeful family, that support the vision and mission of British Fencing.


Telescopic are digital transformation experts led by strong values around diversity, equality and sustainability in the tech world. That’s why they’re now a certified B-Corp company. They’re a majority female team in the male-dominated world of tech, providing expert, bespoke, individual solutions to their clients’ digital transformation and modernisation problems. They’re highly collaborative, forming working partnerships: both parties invested in the solution, working through what’s possible to deliver the best result for everyone.
