Luxury Italian car manufacturer, Maserati, and The Sunday Times have announced the third annual ‘Maserati 100’ index; the 2017 edition is a definitive list of one hundred British business disruptors, who are challenging the establishment.
London, Monday 27th March 2017
The diverse list, published in yesterday’s Sunday Times, celebrates a range of vibrant success stories, start-ups and business influencers, who are using ground-breaking practices to revolutionise their respective industries.
Over 75% of the entrepreneurs named in the list are aged under 50 years old, with the average age of the disruptors being 38. Almost half of the businesses are based in London, with 25% based in major northern cities and the rest spread across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The food and drink industry is represented by 19 individuals whilst the technology industry makes up over 25% of the index.
Peter Denton, Region Manager, Maserati North Europe said, “The Maserati 100 is now in its third year; originally launched to celebrate 100 successful British entrepreneurs in Maserati’s 100thyear. Three years later we’re still firmly dedicated to recognising the valuable contribution Britain’s entrepreneurs are making to the economy. As our business continues to experience a remarkable period of growth we shouldn’t forget how it all began; with the entrepreneurial and disruptive spirit of Alfieri Maserati and his brothers. We are proud to be championing that same drive and tenacity today.”
Sunday Times Business Editor, Iain Dey, said: "Business disruption has allowed start-up entrepreneurs to turn the tables on big business through innovation. With this year's Maserati 100, we are paying tribute to some of the many business disruptors in the United Kingdom – from successes like Fever-Tree to start-ups like About the Funeral."
