Celebrating the biggest tech success stories across in the North of England, Scotland and Ireland
For the eighth consecutive year, GP Bullhound is spotlighting the Northern tech ecosystem, recognising the innovative companies on the frontline of the region’s success. To qualify for entry to the Top 100, firms must have at least three years of revenue growth with a minimum revenue level of £500k in 2018.
Software and Digital Services emerge as the dominant sectors in the list, accounting for 73% of the Top 100 companies, an increase from 67% in 2020. This trend is particularly pertinent in the North West, with representation rising from 57% in 2020 to 75% in 2021.
The Top 100 Northern Tech Awards league table revealed the ranking of the fastest growing and most successful tech companies in the region, and the Northern Stars awards showcases earlier stage companies which are considered to have the most potential to be the tech successes in the coming years.
