Many of us are now familiar with US internet success stories eBay, Amazon, Google and Yahoo! In Blighty, fewer (and less seismic) dotcom successes have been produced in comparison (Lastminute.com is probably the most remarkable).
Things could be changing, however.
In my previous post, I referred to an FT article last week about three tremendously talented schoolboy entrepreneurs based in the UK who launched brilliant websites. Today, in The Guardian, Bobbie Johnson lists 10 British dotcoms to keep track of.
Driven by the surge of Web 2.0 sites and the widespread penetration of broadband, Britain’s dot economy is growing fast and – for now at least – there are no real signs of a bust on the horizon.
Hurrah! The 10 startups are as follows:
- Touch Local
- Trusted Places
I love the nutty names. To find out what these companies do (there are some smashing ideas here), visit the article Top 10 dotcoms to watch.
