MOVE GUIDES FEATURED AS #15 ON STARTUPS.CO.UK'S STARTUP 100 LIST
June 2, 2015
MOVE Guides is honored to be named as one of the top new businesses in the UK. It is an exciting accomplishment to be recognised as a UK tech trailblazer and to be considering one of the best UK business success stories.
Moving up 56 places to number 15 this year is a huge accomplishment and proves that it has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the UK tech scene. Now in its sixth year, the Startups 100 index recognizes privately owned UK companies launched on or after 1 January 2012, which demonstrate innovation, solid financials, economic impact and growth potential.
Startups.co.uk’s content manager, Lucy Wayment, commented: “It’s encouraging to see that the average turnover for the 100 start-ups in this list is over £1m. With a record number of entries this year, the Startups 100 2015 index not only showcases the fast-growth potential of UK start-ups but also demonstrates the importance of trailblazers to the economy.”
Selected from hundreds of entries from start-up entrepreneurs across the country, this year’s winners – revealed on Startups.co.uk today – join an illustrious alumni of businesses which have gone on to become household names such as YPlan, Raspberry Pi, Huddle, Naked Wines and notonthehighstreet.com.
2015’s brightest start-ups
The list serves as a positive reflection of the UK’s thriving start-up community with 187 entrepreneurs featured; ranging in age from 22 to 57. The list also demonstrates the buoyancy of the UK’s investment market, with the businesses featured having secured over £140m between them to grow their early-stage businesses.
From a start-up which specialises in marshmallows to a PR agency which is fast expanding overseas, the 2015 index is as diverse as ever and reflects several emerging markets including on-demand apps, alternative funding providers, healthy food and drink, and financial technology with tech standing out as one of the most popular start-up sectors.
Lucy Wayment continued: “Disruptive tech start-ups are leading the way when it comes to innovation and growth but so many of the exciting businesses in this list have used technology as an enabler to provide a unique twist on products and services which have existed for decades.”
