BusinessCloud reveals '35 under 35' tech entrepreneur list
BusinessCloud has revealed the UK’s top young tech talent on its inaugural ‘35 Tech Entrepreneurs Under 35' list.
Nominations came flooding in from tech talent aged 17 to 35, with many already having started several businesses before they hit their 30th year.
Thanks to the incredible response to the call for nominations we were also able to create a second 'ones to watch' list for the young entrepreneurs that were still starting out on their journey but showed great potential.
The shortlists were chosen on based on entrepreneurial ark, a keen eye for business and the determination to push boundaries with technology.
