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?
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.
