Published annually, the report celebrates the UK’s fastest growing and most dynamic Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs).

Businesses have been selected based on their adherence to set criteria including being at least three years old, demonstrating strong revenue growth over a three-year period, and must be classed as having outperformed their sector peers.

This year marks the sixth edition of the report, which features companies from a diverse range of sectors and regions, reflecting the entrepreneurial drive seen across the country. In addition to identifying the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain, the report also examines the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs.

Thriving in the UK’s diverse economy

“We’re delighted and honoured to have been listed among the most inspirational and fastest growing SMEs in the country. At a time of vast technological change in the Financial Services sector, we’re focused on developing market-leading products that empower better financial decisions,” Zahid Bilgrami, CEO at Defaqto comments. “As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary this year, it’s great to have been recognised for our contribution to the industry and we look forward to continuing to lead the way in the further development of innovative financial information solutions,” he adds.

To be selected for the list, businesses had to demonstrate not only positive growth in revenue over the last three years but also outperform their sector peers. The result is a unique and varied list of the UK’s most dynamic companies. It demonstrates that the UK has a diverse economy with companies representing over 40 sectors from across every region in the UK. Over two-third of the companies are newly identified in this report, while there are six firms that are making their fifth consecutive appearance.
