We are delighted to announce that GRENADE® has been placed at 74th on the 20th annual Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100, published in the Business section of the Sunday Times Newspaper. This is the 3rd consecutive year that Grenade® has been featured on this list. Since its launch, 1,400 companies have appeared on the league table, The Fast Track 100 is sponsored by Virgin, Barclays, BDO, BGF and Virgin Media Business, and is compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.
Sir Richard Branson of Virgin, the title sponsor for all 20 years, commented: “For 20 years, the Fast Track 100 has checked the country’s entrepreneurial pulse, and highlighted the best and brightest talents emerging from the UK – this year is no exception. When I started up in business almost 50 years ago, the word entrepreneur wasn’t really known. Now everyone knows entrepreneurs are the job makers and innovation stimulators of the world. More importantly, many, many more people want to join the club, and change business for good.”
Alan Barratt, CEO of Grenade commented: “Grenade has grown rapidly since its launch in 2010 due to the unwavering support from our global partners. To be included on this list for the last 3 years is a real achievement. Without the commitment and belief of our partners in the EU, USA, India, and the Middle East amongst others, we would not have experienced the growth in such a short space of time. Coupled with the best team at Grenade HQ and in the US the really exciting times are still to come.”
