Tech Track 100

Copa90 is an independent football media business that covers stories on and off the pitch by showcasing football culture from around the world through the eyes of its 1,500 film-makers. When the game took an enforced break earlier this year, Copa90 offered fans a glimpse into footballers’ homes, including those of Rio Ferdinand and Dele Alli. It has also worked with Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling to point out racism in football. Chief executive Tom Thirlwall, 47, took sales to £16m last year, via partnerships with brands such as Pepsi, Electronic Arts and Nike, as well as e-commerce and licensing. In June he committed the company to fighting racism and social injustice, inspired by the Black Lives Matter and Kick It Out movements.
