The UK Fast 50 is one of the UK's foremost technology awards programmes. Now in its twenty-fourth successful year, it is an acknowledgement of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the UK. The ranking is based on revenue growth over the last four years.
Launched in 1998, the UK Fast 50 awards are all about growth driven by leading intellectual property and are a celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship.
Take a deeper look into the Fast 50’s ability to make and execute quick decisions and how this has helped them position themselves for success.
Previous winners have come from across the UK, are both large and small, and include some of the most dynamic players in all areas of technology, from IoT to BioTech, digital media technology to life sciences, FinTech to software and clean energy to telecommunications.
Winners were announced on 18 November at an awards celebration event. In 2021, we were pleased to be able to host an in-person event to celebrate the Fast 50 finalists, following 2020’s virtual event.
Rising Star award
The Rising Star award, introduced for the first time in 2017, recognises the innovation and achievements of UK tech businesses who are leading the way but have not been in operation for four years and therefore cannot yet enter the awards. Deloitte and our two sponsors each named a Rising Star as part of the 2021 programme. They are:
Hopin (named by Barclays), Red Sift (named by Oracle NetSuite) and Meatless Farm (named by Deloitte as the regional winner) and PANGAIA (named by Deloitte as the London winner).
