Nominate a regional tech innovator for BusinessCloud’s Tech 50 rankings

Our Tech 50 rankings highlight the most innovative tech companies in every part of the UK. 

The initiative ranks the 50 most disruptive businesses in each of the 11 UK regions, one at a time, on an annual basis. 

For each ranking, a panel of regional experts judges our final shortlist of 70-200 companies before we open voting to our readers for one week. The final 50 ranking is determined by a combination of judge selections and reader votes. 

“I’m overwhelmed because it will allow me and the business to get out there and make a difference to our planet. We’re very proud. What BusinessCloud has done to increase the profile of new start-up companies has been incredible.”

Peter Davies, founder, 2020 Wales Tech 50 winner Biopaxium Technologies

To be considered for possible London Tech 50 inclusion, businesses must be creating trailblazing tech and be making an impact in the market. The key criterion is innovation.  

The inaugural Tech 50 rankings in 2019/20 attracted more than 16,000 reader votes and 120,000 page views 

A panel of regional experts will judge our shortlist of nominations before we open voting to our readers for one week. The final 50 ranking will be decided by a combination of the two. 

“It is just a huge accolade. To be recognised by reputable bodies such as yours against tough competition and more established businesses is really incredible. It really gives me a lift, and the team deserve it.”

Mark Thomas, CEO, 2020 South East Tech 50 winner Reaction Engines
