On-demand software teams startup, Distributed, has been awarded 16th place on the 2021 Startups 100, the longest running index of the UK’s most disruptive startups. This is based on the company’s accelerating, explosive growth of 500% so far in 2021.
Over the past 18 months Distributed has steamed ahead in delivering digital change as quickly as necessary to help businesses access the best talent, exactly when they need it. Working with the likes of the UK’s Ministry of Justice and Capita, Distributed has connected developers and software testers to work on major multi-firm digital transformation and technical projects.
Run by the UK’s most established website for entrepreneurs, Startups.co.uk, the Startups 100 offers a showcase of new businesses that demonstrate innovation, solid financials, economic impact, and the ability to scale. The list has previously identified what have later become household name brands, including Revolut, Deliveroo, HelloFresh and Bulb.
Callum Adamson, CEO and Co-founder of Distributed, says: “This award is testament to Distributed’s model of Elastic Teams™ having real impact on the way the post-pandemic workplace operates. Businesses need to realise that the tech talent is out there, they just need to be looking in different places. And we’re connecting the dots for them, giving access to on-demand tech talent, no matter how far away they are geographically. In doing so, we are supporting the long overdue rebalance of power between employer and employees – and not too soon.”
Richard Parris, Managing Editor of Startups.co.uk, comments: “After a particularly difficult year for businesses we are happier than ever to celebrate UK success stories. Every year the Startups 100 shows how UK businesses are responding to the issues, concerns and trends of the time. Entrepreneurs solve problems - whether the home care crisis being tackled by businesses like Cera and Birdie, diversity in hiring being challenged by Multiverse, or the recent pet boom being capitalised on by Vet AI - you can see UK businesses innovating to meet the challenges of the time and being very successful whilst doing it!”
