Startups 100 is open for entries!

Are you one of the most exciting, creative and innovative start-up businesses in the UK? Then we want to hear from you!

Following the phenomenal success of the Startups 100 in previous years, we are now compiling our latest list – the definitive countdown of the UK’s most disruptive, creative and pioneering new companies.

Launched in 2008, the Startups 100 is our major, flagship feature, which represents the ultimate round-up of the top 100 start-ups in the UK – recognising and celebrating the nation’s best new businesses. You can check out our 2012 Startups 100 list here.

Previous winners have included some of the UK’s most exciting entrepreneurial success stories, including Zoopla.co.uk, Naked Wines, Wonga.com, Shortlist Media and Huddle.

Think you deserve a place on this year’s list? To make it into the Startups 100, your business must be innovative and original in some way, or taking on an established market with a new or pioneering approach.

After that, we’ll be looking for things like: achievements to date; demonstrable growth potential; strong management / bright thinkers; social responsibility; evidence of existing or future revenues.

Companies must be UK-based and privately owned, and qualifying businesses must have launched on or after 1 January 2010.

To be considered for the 2013 list, register your interest below and you will receive an email with a link to download your entry form. The entry form must be completed by a founder of the company.
