Scottish Tech Startup Awards 2019

Mobile Startup of the Year

This category recognises the Scottish technology business building unique and innovative experiences and applications for mobile devices (including wearables) — whether as a standalone product, or as one part of a larger product suite.

WHAT THE JUDGES ARE LOOKING FOR:

  • Product innovation (50%): does the company articulate a clear and distinct product vision? Are they developing novel technology, that makes effective use of mobile platforms to deliver unique value for their customers?

  • Disruptive potential (25%): does the company have the potential to have a significant impact on an existing market, or to create an entirely new category? Are they well-positioned to take advantage of the market opportunity, and do they appear to have a cogent strategy to do so?

  • Exciting growth (25%): is the company showing impressive growth potential, whether in terms of customer adoption, revenue, or major accounts/deployments?

WHO’S ELIGIBLE:

Defining startups is a tricky business; we’re using a broad definition of ‘startup’. Eligible companies will generally meet at least two of the following criteria:

  • They have been operating for fewer than than 10 years

  • They have less than £10m in annual revenue

  • They have raised less than £10m in investment capital

  • They have fewer than 100 employees

This Award is only open to companies headquartered in Scotland. 

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN! THE FINALISTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON Monday 21 OCTOBER.
