What is The LDC Top 50?

The LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders, supported by The Telegraph, aims to uncover and celebrate the UK’s most ambitious business leaders who inspire success.

Now in its second year and part of our broader Backing Business Ambition initiative, it’s designed to shine a light on the leaders of UK medium sized businesses; the unsung heroes of the British economy. 

We will showcase the business leaders in The Telegraph with the most ambitious named at a celebratory event in October 2019.

To be considered, the entrant must lead a UK-based high-growth profitable medium sized business and have:

  • A strong track record of delivering growth
  • A clear vision for their business
  • A plan to deliver the growth
