We're thrilled to share some exciting news with our SKOOT community! Our dedication to sustainable business practices has been recognised, and SKOOT has been listed in the esteemed Startups 100 Index for 2024. This recognition highlights our growth potential and reinforces our commitment to making a significant environmental impact.

What is the Startups 100 Index?

The Startups 100 Index, run by Startups.co.uk, is a benchmark of success and innovation in the entrepreneurial world. It celebrates new businesses that show exceptional innovation, robust financials, significant market opportunities, and a strong customer base or following. Notably, this index has previously spotlighted game-changing brands like Monzo Bank, Deliveroo, and HelloFresh.

A word from the industry experts

Richard Parris, Managing Editor of Startups.co.uk, remarks on this year's selection:

"The ingenuity and innovation of the brands in our annual Startups 100 index never ceases to amaze, and this year is no exception. Despite recent challenges, we've witnessed incredible businesses from across the UK, each tackling unique challenges but united by a sense of opportunity and optimism for the year ahead."

SKOOT’s mission and vision

Greg Gormley, CEO and Co-founder of SKOOT, shares his thoughts:

"Being recognised in the Startups 100 Index reflects our dedication to creating innovative, sustainable solutions. Our aim is not just to build a business, but to foster a community where everyone can contribute to a healthier planet. SKOOT’s inclusion in this index is the perfect start to 2024, a year set to be one of expansive growth for us"

Our journey and future goals

Today, SKOOT proudly stands with over 1.2 million trees planted and approximately 26,000 tonnes of carbon removed from the atmosphere. Our transparent approach has earned us recognition as a top B Corp for Governance and Transparency.

As we look towards a new year, our goal is to expand globally, bringing our sustainable solutions to every continent by 2028. We're not just asking "Did you tip?" anymore; we're inspiring a movement where "Did you SKOOT?" becomes synonymous with making a positive environmental impact.
