We’re very excited to announce that we’ve been accepted onto Tech City UK’s Future Fifty programme for the UK’s fastest growing, late stage tech companies
Tech City UK has announced 26 new companies that are joining its Future Fifty programme, which showcases and supports 50 of the country’s leading growth stage companies.
Future Fifty gives companies immediate access to a valuable peer network; expert-led classes and workshops designed to take their businesses to the next level; and a higher profile amongst the wider tech ecosystem. Future Fifty companies represent some of the country’s most exciting growth stage tech businesses, while changing the sectors that they operate in fundamentally.
All 26 of the new companies have been identified by a highly experienced and respected judging panel made up of some of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors in UK tech. They believe these companies have the potential to scale rapidly and build significant businesses.
Parveen Dhanda, Programme Lead for Future Fifty at Tech City UK, said: “We’re delighted to be working with this year’s intake. Together, they represent the diversity and depth of the UK technology sector. Their passion and talent has seen them do amazing things so far and we look forward to helping them to take the next step.”
Gerard Grech, CEO, Tech City UK, said: “From Fintech to online shopping, telematics to edtech, the Future Fifty companies offer a glimpse into the UK’s digital future. Britain remains one of the best places in the world to start a tech business and we will make sure it remains so. These companies have global ambitions and with the support of the tech community we will do everything we can to help them, so that they can create jobs and opportunities across the UK, as their successful predecessors have done.”
Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, said: “The UK has a world-renowned tech and digital sector and the value of the Future Fifty programme has been to support the fastest-growing, most pioneering companies in their final push to build mainstream businesses. The fact that so many Future Fifty companies are now household names is testimony that it works.”
“The innovation that we are seeing in all of these young firms is key to the Government’s Modern Industrial Strategy. We recognise that through tech and the digitisation of many aspects of UK business, we can create new opportunities across the city to expand our economy and make it more productive. The companies that join Future Fifty today will be the established businesses and employers of tomorrow.”
