Applications are now open for KPMG’s fifth annual Best British Tech Startup competition. Six finalists will benefit from an incredible opportunity to profile their businesses to senior corporate decision makers, investors and the media.

Since launching the competition in 2013, we have had nearly 1,000 applications including cutting-edge startups like Babylon Health, what3words, Your.MD, SafeToNet, and Echo.

The Judges will be assessing the applications based on three fundamental criteria:

  • Innovation and disruption: with respect to business model, market approach, processes, and/or technology.
  • Market potential: within existing market (and therefore taking market share) or in the creation of a new market segment.
  • Traction and momentum: with respect to funding raised, established distribution channels, industry partnerships, user growth and/or and growing sales.

To be in with a shot of winning, you can apply here. You’ve got until the 23rd of November to get them in!
