Announcing our new-look Tech 50 sector rankings
Posted on April 19, 2021 by Jonathan Symcox
BusinessCloud is revamping its innovation rankings with a calendar of sector-specific Tech 50s.
The move brings together its hugely successful regional Tech 50s – which celebrated the innovation in each corner of the UK – and top 100s in HealthTech, FinTech, eCommerce and MediaTech.
The new Tech 50s will crown the most innovative tech companies in 13 sectors via the following rankings:
- PropTech 50
- HealthTech 50
- MedTech 50
- TransportTech 50
- SportTech 50
- MarTech 50
- FinTech 50
- InsurTech 50
- FactoryTech 50
- EdTech 50
- RetailTech 50
- EnviroTech 50
- MediaTech 50
The inaugural ranking for every sector – with the exception of MediaTech, which will debut in 2022 – will be run this year (dates available here).
MedTech and InsurTech receive their own recognition, spun out of the top 100s in HealthTech and FinTech respectively. For the first time, we will shine a spotlight on nationwide innovators in sectors including property, education, marketing, sport, transport and green tech.
For each ranking, a panel of industry experts will judge our shortlist of nominations – between 75-200 companies of all sizes – before we open voting to our readers for a week. The final 50 ranking will be decided by a combination of the two.
As part of the shortlisting process, turnover, workforce growth, media coverage and investment may be key validators; however, the key criterion for judging the final ranking is creation of disruptive technology.
