The Leap is proud to have worked with the Financial Times to create the FT Future 100 UK 2018/2019 – a list of high-growth businesses that are shaping the future of their industry and contributing positively to society and their community.

Companies listed in The FT Future 100 UK were independently researched by Statista and selected by a panel including the Financial Times, Mishcon de Reya and Statista. The list, as well as important themes and case studies drawn from it, are featured in a special report published by the Financial Times.

The FT Future 100 UK companies are included in The Leap. The Leap brings together business founders and leaders through a series of events and workshops, creating a community of like-minded individuals who can learn from each other and share their experiences and ideas on how to shape the future of their industry and society.

The criteria for inclusion in the FT Future 100 UK 2018/2019 list were:

  • Revenue of at least €100,000 generated in 2013 (or currency value equivalent as of December 31, 2013)
  • Revenue of at least €1.5 million generated in 2016 (or currency value equivalent as of December 31, 2016)
  • The company is independent (the company is not a subsidiary or branch office of any kind).
  • The revenue growth between 2013 and 2016 was primarily organic (i.e. “internally” stimulated)
  • If a company is listed on a stock exchange, its share price has not fallen 25 per cent or more since 2016
  • Initiative to disrupt the industry
  • Drive to make an impact on society or environment
