Month: December 2016

An award-winning November for Smedvig Capital portfolio companies

Two Smedvig portfolio companies have won places in Deloitte’s 2016 Technology awards. The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and Fast 500 rank the fastest growing technology companies around the world.

Quill has been awarded a place in the 2016 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 – a ranking of the UK’s fastest-growing technology companies according to their revenue growth over the past four years. Following wins in 2014 and 2015, Quill has once again made the list, ranking in 43rd place this year with a revenue growth rate of 407%.

Mediamorph has ranked 153 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Mediamorph has grown 558% during this period.

Ed Bussey, CEO of Quill commented:
“I’m thrilled that Quill has once again been ranked one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the UK. I’m confident that this rate of growth will accelerate as we move into 2017, with plans to expand the team, to replicate our UK successes overseas and to continue to optimise our multi-language content production processes. I’d like to thank everyone on the incredibly talented Quill team – who have made all this possible with their unstoppable energy, as well as our investors, who have supported us on the journey and who share the same global ambitions for Quill as we do.”

Rob Gardos, CEO of Mediamorph commented:
“Over the past three years, Mediamorph has made great advancements to our platform and broadened our offering to more types of customers around the globe. We are proud that Mediamorph made the Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ and want to thank our customers and employees for driving our success.”

My Home Move have had an extremely successful month winning four awards at three different events.

For the fourth year in a row they won ‘Best Legal Services Provider’ at the Your Mortgage Awards. They have also won ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the Modern Law Awards. Lastly, they won two highly coveted awards – ‘Best Conveyancing Firm’ and ‘Innovation (non-lender)’ at the 2016 Mortgage Finance Gazette Awards.

LOVESPACE have been named ‘Crowdfunded Business of the Year’ for the second time at the Start Up Awards 2016. The Start Up Awards recognise the UK’s most creative, innovative and ambitious new businesses.

Finance Director Simon Fattuhi commented:
“It was a tough competition. We were up against a pool of fast growing start-ups, some of whom will no doubt become household names in years to come. Several of them had raised substantially more money than we did this time round. Given the popularity and prevalence of crowdfunding as an alternative source of finance these days, it was an honour to be nominated. To come out and win is a fantastic recognition of what we have achieved this year.”
