The 2017 Disrupt South West Index
Introducing the Top 25 South West Disrupter Businesses
The DisruptSW index celebrates local ventures that have the very real potential to shake up their respective industries, both in the UK and on a global scale.
Since 2002, 52% of the Fortune 500 companies are no longer around. Most now only have a life expectancy of 15-20 years. It’s no wonder there are so many new startups grasping at their chance to disrupt their industry.
At Tällt we analyse and track new ventures against a 3-P axis - People, Product and Potential – to identify truly disruptive businesses. We go beyond looking at current performance and market size, instead studying everything from the founding team and investors, to the technology and ambition – plus a whole lot more in between.
Compiling our final 25 has been no easy feat, but after studying a range of exciting local ventures, we’ve identified a rich and diverse group of innovative and engaging businesses who are scaling fast and help to showcase our region as an innovation hub, not just within the UK, but around the world.
