Real Business created the Future 50 project in 2011, to recognise the UK’s most exciting, most disruptive early-stage businesses. With just a short time to go before nominations close for this year’s Everline Future 50 (midnight, Monday January 6, 2014), here’s a quick glimpse at some of the game-changing companies already in the running.
New apps and digital solutions for young holiday-makers – as the founder puts it, “There has been no innovation in this sector since Club 18-30 was invented in 1970.”
Bringing the “sharing economy” to private transport. A new service to help women motorists become more knowledgeable and have enough confidence to know that they are paying the correct prices when it comes to their cars.
A major innovation in loyalty cards, focusing on the independent retail sector. Collaborative consumption comes to the pre-owned designer fashion market. Mobile car tyre replacement = bye bye KwikFit.
Recruitment disrupter features strongly with one business turning the traditional model of recruitment on its head; and another providing a unique online marketplace to match high-quality interns with corporate employers.
The pre-hospital A&E sector is also ripe for disruption, says one nominee. Another is aiming to bring technology to police whistleblower calls. And, three cheers, the estate agency model is being challenged by a well-backed start-up.
Do you know a young business that’s disrupting its market or creating a new market? Put them forward for this year’s Everline Future 50.
The Everline Future 50, with Real Business, is the UK’s largest programme to recognise early-stage disruptive businesses. Nominations close at midnight on Monday January 6, 2014.
Successful candidates will be recognised at a special Everline Future 50 celebration on February 25, where you can meet many of the UK’s most exciting new businesses.
