Smarta.com and O2 Business proudly announce that social enterprise Cause4 is a winner of
the 2014 O2 Smarta 100, the index of the UK’s savviest, supremely disruptive, most
resourceful and socially-beneficial small businesses.

The O2 Smarta 100 awards celebrates new UK tech powerhouses like Squawka, Rant & Rave and Pact Coffee, as much as those dedicated to changing thousands of lives for the better – Two Fingers Brewing Co, whose profits go in full to prostate cancer research.
