Each year The Sunday Times ranks Britain’s 100 private tech companies with the fastest-growing sales over the last three years. It’s a varied list, but one that demonstrates the growth and potential of your company to investors and peers as well as current and future customers.

Tech Track 100 companies on the list are typically:

  • an independent tech* company
  • UK registered, unquoted, and not subsidiaries
  • achieving sales of at least £250,000 in the base year (2012 or 2013)
  • achieving sales of at least £5m in the latest year (2015 or 2016)

* The definition of a technology company is based on the London Stock Exchange’s techMARK definition, i.e. ‘a company that shows a commitment to innovation, research and product development, and operates in sectors including software, internet, telecoms and biotech.’

Last year, software companies dominated the league table with 23 companies developing software for anything from tracking vehicles (Tantalum Corporation, No 14), to accountancy software (Crunch, No 63) and identity document authentication (IDscan, No 36).

You’ll get a sense of the type of companies that populate the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 and the emerging trends from last year’s Top 100 ranking.

Of course, each company on the list has faced their own challenge as they’ve risen from start-up to potential major player. Hear more from some of the companies that populated last year’s lists as well as tips from more well-known entrepreneurs in our Tech Track 100 hub.

As an insurer that has been writing intelligent insurance solutions for the tech industry for more than 21 years, we’re once again proud to be the title sponsor for the Sunday Times Tech Track 100.  It’s an important part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the growth of the UK technology sector.

If your company is a pure computer reseller, a payday lender or has qualified accounts then you won’t be able to apply. For full details on criteria visit Tech Track 100.

Companies that do not meet the criteria can still be considered for the Ones to Watch programme. This is a selection of companies that have either achieved, or predict, good sales growth.

Nominations are open until midnight, 8 July 2016 and the list will be published in The Sunday Times on 11 September 2016. To enter, fill in the nomination form.

We look forward to seeing if your company makes the 2016 Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100…good luck!
