Channel Futures MSP 501 and NextGen 101 Awards Are Now Open

Be counted among your peers as one of the top managed service providers in the world. Deadline to submit is May 24.

About the MSP 501

Now in its 14th year, the MSP 501 is the IT Channel’s first, largest, and most comprehensive survey and ranking of managed service providers (MSPs) worldwide.

Each year, the MSP 501 recognizes some of the biggest and most successful managed service providers in the world. Want to know what it takes? See what the application looks like.

What's the NextGen 101?

In response to demand from telecom agents, resellers, digital agencies and other non-MSP channel partners that are spinning up managed services practices, we last year launched the NextGen 101, an MSP 501 list.

The NextGen 101 recognizes outstanding partners from outside of the traditional managed services business model that are devoting energy and resources to building out recurring managed services revenue streams and creating the channel partner powerhouses of the future. If you’re hoping to earn a coveted spot on the NextGen 101, just apply for the 2021 MSP 501 and you will be automatically submitted for both lists.

What do you get if your company earns a spot on the 501?
