The Hiscox Sunday Times Tech Track 100, reflecting Britain’s fastest growing private technology companies, has once again been published. As always it makes for interesting reading, showcasing the success of entrepreneurial tech companies from all over the UK – that includes the Isle of Man where No 1 company Plan.com is based, a smart software platform allowing customers to track their telecommunications in real time, watch usage and avoid nasty bill surprises. It also includes a significant number of Tech Track alumni from the northwest.
Notably, peer-to-peer lending platforms such as Funding Circle, Assetz Capital and Zopa appear this time round; so too software and digital-finance businesses. In terms of the latter, just under half of the top 100 companies listed works in software or fin-tech, up significantly from 2017. Automation software specialist Thoughtonomy, cyber-security firm Darktrace and money transfer specialist Azimo all feature prominently. And then there are trailblazing brands like luxury fashion e-tailer Farfetch, which has just filed an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange and could be reportedly valued at more than $4bn.
Farfetch has actually charted at No 52 and we’re proud to say that Victor follows closely behind at No 59. We’re even more proud to say that this is Victor’s fourth consecutive year in the Tech Track 100. Our business continues to grow and innovate within the private aviation space thanks to a long-valued and heralded combination of high-tech innovation and high-touch customer service. That we are again surrounded by such prestigious, fast-growing businesses is extremely humbling and reminds us that we are on the right track in our journey to deliver a game-changing service for elite travellers all over the world. More than that it focuses our attention even more keenly to achieve and deliver in the future.
This is an exciting time to be a British technology business. And we’d like to thank our customers and partners for their ongoing support as they join us on our onward journey. Thank you very much.
The Victor Team.
