There are some criteria to pass, though: Your gross revenue should be of £5m or over in the last 12 months, your net revenue should have grown by an annual average of at least 30% over the last 12 years and of course your headquarters must be in the UK.

Make the most of it

It’s no secret that Future Fifty is good at what it does. Having collectively raised $3 billion and seeing the employment of 23,000 people since its birth, it’s something well worth being a part of.

The programme is the perfect way to develop your tech company. Future Fifty provides excellent opportunities to further your knowledge by learning from the global experts in your field, and it then goes the extra mile: Future Fifty gives you the connections you need to encourage the growth of your business.

There is also the unprecedented chance to network with renowned tech companies who benefitted from the Future Fifty scheme themselves, such as Bristol-based Just Eat, Shazam and Skyscanner. On top of this, Tech City UK is even offering promotional opportunities to share the great things you’re doing with the world. So, why miss out? Apply now for Future Fifty 2017!
