Tech Track 100

If you are male and less than 25 years of age, chances are you will be among this firm’s 36m social media fans. The Lad Bible’s videos and articles range from celebrity gossip to politics, and its technology crunches the public’s comments to help brands, such as Netflix and NFL, target their marketing campaigns. Sales grew to £7.5m this year, and later this month the Manchester firm will open a new 5,000 sq ft TV studio in London. Chief executive Solly Solomou, 25, was a student at Leeds University when he started the business in 2012.
