CNBC Begins The Search For The CNBC Upstart 100

A Call for Nominations


ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. - July 20, 2018 ( Newswire) CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, today announced it is accepting nominations for the CNBC Upstart 100, a list that showcases up-and-coming companies breaking industry barriers on the path to becoming tomorrow's household names.

The CNBC Upstart list debuted in 2017 and featured 25 companies from nearly every sector, including fintech, health tech, cybersecurity, consumer products, music, food and more. For 2018, CNBC is casting an even wider net - expanding the number of start-ups on the list from 25 to 100 - looking for technology-driven start-ups that are experiencing rapid growth due to their innovative products, apps, tools or services.

The deadline to submit the nomination form is August 10, 2018. Companies eligible for submission must meet the following criteria:

  • Companies must be private and independently owned
  • Companies are 5 years old or younger (founded no earlier than January 1, 2013)
  • Companies are Series B or earlier in their funding
  • Companies have raised a maximum of $50 million in funding, regardless of series.

Companies will be scored on a wide-range of quantitative metrics including scalability, sales and user growth, intellectual property, and more.

Winners will be notified in September and the list will be published in October across CNBC’s TV and Digital platforms.
