Top 10 UK Undiscovered Startups

Published on:

Lots of promising young companies are arising from the UK. But what about undiscovered startups? To find out who they are & what they offer read more:

With 82 successful exits in 2015, according to the European Tech Exits Report 2015, the UK, and London in particular, are two of the brightest startups hubs in Europe, and praised for their innovation.

Equidam conducted a survey & we would like to highlight 10 startups, out of a large number, that are growing under the radar. We believe they deserve to be discovered, and who knows, maybe one day they will become the champions of the UK and European economy!

Why these companies?

Compared to 350 other startups, these companies displayed exceptional performance on important success factors – strength of the team, size of the opportunity, competitive environment, etc. – while not being on the radar of investors and media websites.

Most competitions are biased towards companies that reached the largest number of milestones. We tried to avoid this bias, and reward companies on abnormal performance no matter their development stage.

So here it is:
