The first ever league table is being compiled to feature the top 100 tech companies in the North of England. The table will rank the 100 fastest growing tech companies, with rankings based on revenue growth over the past three years.
The table is being assembled by Tech North and their partners, technology investment bank GP Bullhound. For those who are not familiar with Tech North, they are part of Tech City UK, a Government initiative set up in 2014 to increase home grown tech talent and create a tech scene that rivals our overseas competitors.
To be eligible to enter, you must be a technology company with a minimum of £500,000 revenue in 2014, as well as being based in the North of the UK (Scotland included).
As there has never before been a regionalised table such as this, the final output is eagerly anticipated, and will no doubt afford the companies listed with a great deal of recognition. There is also a possibility that the table will be utilised by companies outside the sector when looking for prospective project partners.
The deadline for entries is 24 February 2017. The league table will be published on 30 March 2017 and winners will be celebrated at the Northern Tech Awards 2017 in Newcastle on the same day.
