This is Not a Beauty Pageant
“We are looking for startups and entrepreneurs that are working hard and making a difference. Being good on paper, using jargon and calling yourself ‘a disruptor’ whilst getting lots of funding is great, but it’s not a deciding factor for our top 100. Don’t be turned off entering just because you aren’t the biggest agency or the biggest funded startup. We want to recognise startups and businesses of all sizes.“
TechRound Co-Founders, David Soffer and Daniel Tannenbaum
