Careology Ranking methodologyWith hundreds of incredible new businesses applying for the Startups 100 every year, we've spent a lot of time perfecting the ranking and judging processes to make sure the very best new ventures get the recognition they deserve.The criteria for entry are simple: you must be a UK-based business, founded in the last five years.During the application stage, we ask businesses to provide us with insight into their operations, ranging from details of any funds or investment raised to letting us know what they believe makes them exceptional.The first step in ranking the Startups 100 is an assessment of the businesses’ financial position. We provide weighted scores based on:Finance raisedTurnover for the previous financial yearThe second stage in the ranking process is more subjective. A shortlist of businesses is provided to the Startups team, with the finances removed, so that judgement can be made based on the strength of the business idea alone.We take into account strength of concept, the size of the opportunity, and the disruptiveness of the idea, assigning a score for each factor. These scores are then combined with the financial weighting to give us our overall ranking. What Does Your Business Need Help With?
