Earlier this week, Tech City UK announced 15 new members for its Future 50 programme. E-commerce is the dominant theme this year, with a third of the new companies providing innovative e-commerce solutions.
“The UK is developing a global reputation for world-class digital innovation in sectors such as fin-tech and e-commerce” said Eileen Burbudge, chair at Tech City UK. “In turn, this is attracting increasing investment activity, talent and expertise into the country”.
Looking at the regional-spread of the 15 companies, nine are based in London, while the others hail from Brighton, Ricksmanworth, Exeter, Basingstoke, and Sheffield. To date the 15 companies have raised just under £450m collectively.
Previous Future 50 graduates include Hailo, Shazam, made.com, and Secret Escapes. Gerard Grech, CEO of Tech City UK, has said: “In a rich and varied marketplace, these entrepreneurs are united by global ambition and enormous potential”.
