Just two months after raising their latest round of funding, Sheffield startup Tutora are making waves yet again today as they celebrate ranking 77th on the Startups 100 List.
Heralded as the ‘longest running index of the best new UK businesses’, the Startups 100 List is highly competitive, highlighting the head-turners of the entrepreneurial world. Since forming the first list in 2008, previous Startups 100 lists have featured the likes of LendInvest, Deliveroo and Secret Escapes - before they became household names.
Criteria to be picked for the list are very tight. To be nominated, startups must be less than three years old, based within the UK and privately owned. Then, judges rank each startup based upon how they uniquely innovate within their industry, the ability and drive of their founders, their success so far and what potential they show for future growth.
Founded in August 2015, Tutora have rapidly grown from a small tutoring company in Sheffield to become the UK’s leading tuition marketplace connecting families with the best private tutors for their children. Tutora now boast over 8000 private tutors on their platform, who teach thousands of lessons each week across the country.
Speaking about today’s announcement, Tutora CEO and Founder Scott Woodley said “It’s an incredible honour to be recognised on this years Startups 100 list. After failing to rank in 2016, it’s wonderful to say that just one year on we can count ourselves amongst a host of other amazing UK businesses. It truly is a testament to our team's dedication to growing the company. Congratulations to everyone who made it!”
