Vidsy Named In Disruption50 Index of Most Disruptive Companies
The pioneering project to seek out the 50 most disruptive companies in the UK has been announced.
The Index celebrates British organisations driving disruption across industries.
Judges from IBM, Shell, Digital Catapult and Remitly scored each company. This included broad indicators of disruption such as fast growth, replacing incumbents, and changing the structure of their market. The Index experts, selected from a range of backgrounds and businesses, used their experience of working with scale ups, start ups, and corporates to judge each application.
“It’s a great to be listed amongst such a strong roster of companies. We’re rapidly disrupting the status quo around how brands make video advertising. Our new model, built around our Creative Technology Engine empowers brands to create best-in-class mobile video ads faster and more efficiently across digital . ” says Gerard Keeley, Vidsy CEO.
Additionally, in an industry first, the Swarm AI platform made it possible for judges to rank companies in a collaborative and comparative way. On the 25th of June, all judges used the platform to decide, as a group, how disruptive they considered each company to be. The AI then asked judges to rank companies based on their potential to disrupt an industry or service, as well as how likely they would be to significantly impact society, business, and business models across sectors.
From startup to social enterprise, each shortlisted organisation demonstrates that disruption is a critical pillar of success. Many have experienced rapid growth and now serve clients and consumers at global scale. Not only are these companies disrupting their own industries – they are disrupting the world.
To find out where Vidsy and the other companies ranked you’ll have to wait until the European Disruption50 Summit on September 10th.
