Care home finder Lottie is celebrating after being placed second on Startups 100’s index of disruptive new startups. Lottie has been climbing the Startups 100 ladder, ranking eighth last year. This year it has been ranked just behind innovative AI startup, Unitary, which focuses on moderation of harmful online content.
Lottie aims to simplify finding trusted care homes at fair prices and boasts of saving families an average of £5,000 annually. It recently raised a further £17m in Series A funding, bringing the total amount raised by the company to £25m.
The Startups 100 Index has been running for sixteen years, with the final list championing a huge range of inventive and original ideas. In previous years, the index has predicted the success of huge names such as Monzo, Deliveroo, and Notonthehighstreet.
Startups.co.uk managing editor Richard Parris said: “The ingenuity and innovation of the brands featuring in our annual Startups 100 index never ceases to amaze, and this year is no exception. We’ve seen no end of crises in the past couple of years, including in the care sector. The approachable tech and human-centric focus that drives the Lottie business really helped this brand to stand out for our judges. It’s a business that’s not simply looking to disrupt a sector, but to make life worth living at an incredibly vulnerable stage for so many in the UK.”
