DLA Piper sponsors 2020 UK Technology Fast 50

DLA Piper is pleased to sponsor the 2020 Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50, for the fourth year running, As one of the UK’s foremost technology award programmes and now in its 23rd year, it ranks the country’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies, based on revenue growth.

At last night’s virtual award ceremony, DivideBuy was ranked in the top spot, having grown by an impressive 20,733% over the last three years and demonstrated outstanding sustained growth, having also ranked highly in third place in last year’s awards. Whilst FinTech businesses dominated the rest of the rankings, second place was awarded to Bulb Energy with 14,288% growth over three years and Popsa, a user friendly photo printing app, came third with 10,576% growth over the same period.

In the ‘Rising Star’ category, which recognises these organisations that have been in business for under four years DLA Piper nominated The Up Co, which as well as creating Europe’s largest phone charging network, provides hand sanitising stations and hospitality management platforms to top venues.

Commenting on DivideBuy’s first place positioning, DLA Piper’s London Managing Partner and UK Tech Sector lead, said: "Being one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK is a fantastic accomplishment in itself but for DivideBuy to sustain such significant levels of growth two years running is a remarkable achievement. It was also a privilege to nominate The Up Co as a rising star.”

“DLA Piper’s ongoing association with the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 reflects the focus and support that we give to tech start-ups and the continuing work we do with technology leaders and pioneers. We are proud to be involved with a programme that showcases the outstanding levels of innovation and entrepreneurship that exist in the sector.”
