Last week they announced details of the innovative Climate Tech companies participating in Net Zero 2.0 and today, they’ve revealed details of the 15 companies that have been selected to join the Future Fifty programme - their growth programme for late-stage digital businesses.

Since its launch in 2013, 202 companies have taken part in the programme, collectively raising $36bn in venture capital investment.  11 of those have gone on to  IPO, including Deliveroo, Darktrace, and Wise (London’s largest-ever tech listing) as well as Revolut - the UK’s single largest tech company, valued at £23bn. The programme reflects the growth of the UK tech sector, and the “funnel” which takes companies from seed to billion-dollar valuations.
