Future 50



Small firms are the lifeblood of our economy here in the UK, and with figures showing growth as we go into 2015, there’s never been a better time to spotlight the innovative start-ups helping to drive recovery. Our exciting Everline Future 50 project aims to do just that. Showcasing 50 of the UK’s hottest new or early stage businesses, the Everline 50 is a nationwide awards scheme that celebrates those companies blazing a trail in their field and the hunt is now underway to find this year’s exceptional candidates.

These innovative rising stars can come from any sector – past winners include businesses from the worlds of ecommerce, property, veterinary, fashion, motoring and hospitality – but they all have one thing in common: they are all early disruptors, helping to trigger change in their field and overturning accepted notions of how things are done.

future50-meetandgreetLaunched four years ago by our partner, Real Business magazine, the Future 50 has already uncovered some of the most thrilling new names in business.  Successful candidates aren’t merely thriving start-ups – the awards go to those who are genuinely ripping up the rule books and challenging convention by revolutionising just about everything we do, from the way we shop and travel, to how we communicate and spend money.

Here at Everline, we pride ourselves on being disruptive within the SME lending sector by providing fast, flexible and convenient finance to businesses who need it, and so the Future 50 awards are particularly close to our heart. We are delighted to be involved again this year and we can’t wait to see the new crop of talent out there.

Excitingly, for the very first time, Everline and Real Business will be inviting last year’s Future 50 class to join the Future 50 academy to vote on who should be included in the 2015 line up. Not only does this bring valuable expertise to the table but no one knows disruptive innovators better than those who’ve already succeeded with merit.
