Welcome to BusinessCloud’s inaugural list of the country’s most promising tech start-ups.

Last week we brought you the hottest disrupters, companies already using tech to shake up traditional industries. You can view that full list here.

And today it is the turn of the Rising Stars – exciting firms which did not make the main list but have the potential to grow.

To be considered for the list they had to have been launched on or after January 1, 2012, be based in the UK and have the ability to scale quickly.

The list is not in order of importance. If you know of a worthy company that has not been included, email news@businesscloud.co.uk.
