What We Are Looking For…
“We are looking for innovative and hard-working individuals and companies of truly all sizes in the UK SaaS space, from starting out to being fully established. Whilst funding is always a validation of success, this is not crucial in our judging process and overall we want to demonstrate what quality and capabilities that the UK SaaS industry has to offer.”
“Beyond this, we want to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and create a SaaS 66 list that future generations will look back on with admiration.”
“We will truly consider all types of companies and all backgrounds – so do not be turned off from applying, we want to hear your story and share it with the world.”
“Just make sure that your application is clear and concise. Make sure it answers the questions and does not waffle.”
