Some 11 UK tech entrepreneurs have been honored in this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 list, featuring 300 young innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders from across Europe.

Covering 10 different categories including the arts, entertainment and finance industries, the list includes entrepreneurs vetted by a panel of expert judges in their respective fields.

Entrepreneurs were selected based on a set of criteria including their entrepreneurial mindset and the potential to disrupt their chosen field over the next half-century.

The UK tech entrepreneurs included in this year’s list are:

      • Sam Amrani, founder of Tamoco
      • Daniel Attia, founder of Yopa
      • Ed Barton, co-founder of Curiscope
      • Ed Boyes, CEO of HelloFresh
      • Edward Perello, co-founder of Desktop Genetics
      • Alexandra Margolis, co-founder at Carwow
      • Timothy Sadler, Co-founder at CheckRecipient
      • Charles Taylor, founder of Debut
      • Scott Taylor, founder of MiDrive
      • Ben Grech, co-founder of Uniplaces
      • Tommy Walkinshaw, founder of Alba Orbital

Speaking about the list, Randall Lane, editor of Forbes, said: “The Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list is the ultimate honor roll of the young entrepreneurs reshaping Europe for the better. For our second annual list, we scoured the continent for the people revamping every industry and recruited an all-star judging panel to help us determine the best of the best. The result is 300 superstars, across 10 fields, who will impact Europe for the next 50 years.”

Women in tech

Despite UK tech being well-represented in this year’s list, some commentators highlighted the need for more female entrepreneurs to be included in the roundup.

The criticism follows on from various calls from industry insiders to figure out new ways in which to attract women to work in the sector.
