The Telegraph Tech Start-Up 100 list has been announced with the winners being announced on the 12th April.
So apparently the cut-off criterion for being deemed a "startup" was that the company was less than six years old or had had a pivot towards its current model that effectively made it less than six years old. This is probably why companies like 10 year old SkyScanner an 9 year old Secunia are included.
Anyway here is the list sorted by category:
Advertising and Marketing
Audio and Media
Education, Recruitment and Jobs
Enterprise: Security, Storage, Collaboration, Databases
Finance, Payments and Ecommerce
Gaming, Virtual Worlds
Social Networking and Collaboration
Travel and Transport
So there it is 100 top tech startups, it's a lot so here are some of my favourites I think you should check out: Skimlinks, Huddle, Pick Live, Funding Circle, Spread Shirt, Screenreach & Just-Eat.
I think someone needs to come up with an official definition what a startup is! How do you define it?
