Profit Track 100

10 Profit Track Ones to Watch

The 10 Profit Track Ones to Watch represents a cross-section of companies that did not meet the strict criteria of the Profit Track 100 league table, but have achieved or predict good profit growth. Fast Track conducted virtual meetings with the majority of the shortlisted companies, which were assessed for inclusion based on factors such as:

  • Resilience in the face of the pandemic
  • Strong current or forecast profit growth
  • The business model and sales growth
  • Experience of the management team
  • Investor credibility and funds raised

This year’s 10 Profit Track Ones to Watch was judged by BDO and Fast Track. The 10 finalists were published in the 22nd annual Profit Track 100 supplement in The Sunday Times on 11 April.

An overall winner will be presented with an award at the Profit Track 100 virtual awards event on 15 June.
