Welcome to BusinessCloud’s EdTech 50 ranking for 2024.

Tapestry by the Foundation Stage Forum Ltd. tops the third annual ranking of the 50 most innovative UK companies creating original technology for education and workplace development.

Following the creation of a 98-strong shortlist, the final ranking was decided by a combination of selections from an expert judging panel and a public vote among readers of BusinessCloud.

You can click on the company names to see what they do. Businesses wishing to purchase an extended profile, including a logo, website links and content promotion, can email editor Jonathan Symcox here.

The ranking is supported by Tyto, the European PR and communications agency at the intersection of technology, science and innovation.

We also polled the top 50 and gathered views from judges to quantify and reflect technology trends in education and workplace development. The 2024 EdTech Insights report found that there has been an acceleration in the adoption of tech in the last 12 months but the sector remains lacking when it comes to accessibility and inclusion.
