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.”
