Check out which disruptive businesses made it into our 2016 Future 50Meanwhile, Revolut’s founder and CEO, Nikolay Storonsky, said: “We have gained a good amount of PR coverage and social media recognition. It has been great for building brand awareness and helping us market our service and recruit new customers.” For Chieu Cao, co-founder of 2016 member Perkbox, recognition as a Future 50 winner helped to reinforce what the business is all about and proves the team are doing something right in terms of a offering clients and how it operate as a both business and an employer. Real Business will be running the nomination process for the next two months, during which time we are looking for suggestions from every corner of the UK. It doesn’t matter if a first customer hasn’t been secured or no equity investment been raised, it’s all about the idea behind each of the disruptive businesses. We’ll be looking to hear what the origins of the business and founding team are, how a gap in the market was identified, what evidence of disruption there as been and what kind of scale is possible. Once our list of possible 2017 Future 50 companies has been assembled, we’ll then put it to our alumni – asking a select panel to judge which the most disruptive businesses are. It’s a fantastic example of a peer-led process, the winners are decided by contemporaries that know what it takes to build a game-changing business.
