The Southern Tech 100 Future Stars

Published on: 18/08/2016

The sponsors and judges of the Southern Tech 100 – the annual tech listing run by The Business Magazine, are looking for the stars of tomorrow: the fast-rising companies that are destined to enter a future top 100 listing.

If you own or work for a technology company that is growing, and is gaining a strong reputation in the sector, you should enter the Tech 100 Future Stars competition.

Not only will you have the opportunity to gain valuable promotion, and free mentoring and advisory services that will help turbo-boost your growth, your company will be featured in The Business Magazine and on social media.

The Southern Tech 100 is The Business Magazine’s annual listing of the top 100 private, independent technology companies in an area stretching from Banbury to the Isle of Wight.

 Future Stars criteria:

  • Entrants must be businesses with turnover of between £1m and £8m
  • Eligible businesses must have filed at least one year’s annual accounts
  • Companies that are unquoted and UK-owned – and based in our Tech 100 area - are eligible
  • Fast-growth pre-revenue companies will also be considered

 Entry deadlines:

 The competition was launched in the May issue of The Business Magazine, online and on social media

  • Entrants should submit their nomination by closing date August 31, 2016
  • Shortlisted nominations will be invited to ‘pitch’ their business to a panel of judges in September 2016
  • Winners will be announced October 1, 2016

How to Enter:

 Companies can submit either a 500-word narrative or a one-minute video clip – or both

  • The clip gives scope for the company to be creative in its nomination
  • Finalists chosen to ‘pitch’ to judges will have the option to ‘professionalise’ their video if required
  • Videos can also be posted on a site – so that our readers and the tech community can help vote for the best

Winners prizes:

 Trophy for your reception or boardroom

  • Free mentoring and support from Moore Stephens, Barclays and Marks & Clerk
  • Free mentoring session with a successful Tech 100 company working in the same field as the winner
  • Full-page feature in The Business Magazine
  • Promotion on businessmag.co.uk and in social media
