Cambridge trio make new list of UK’s fastest growing companies

Three Cambridge companies are today named in a new pantheon of the 100 fastest-growing UK companies backed by BBC Dragons.

The founder-led companies have been revealed in The FEBE Growth 100 –  backed by former BBC Dragons Jenny Campbell & Sarah Willingham plus the founders of Charlie Bigham’s and Bloom & Wild.

The Cambridge trio named are Microdot – supplier of diabetic equipment –Accora, which provides clinical seating and specialist profiling beds for home and care environments, and Thermoteknix which specialises in thermal imaging cameras.

Several Hertfordshire companies and one from Milton Keynes also make the hot 100. They are MRN in Milton Keynes which specialises in decentralised clinical trials and Herts cohort Huel (meal replacement); Silixa (distributed fibre optic sensing systems); Lintbells (dog health & hair products) and DK Engineering (Ferrari engineering specialist).

Businesses are ranked by compound annual growth rate in sales over the last two financial years.

The FEBE Growth 100, co-founded by Charlotte Quince and John Maffioli, was born out of a desire to reinstate the true meaning of entrepreneurship, by focusing on the founders behind incredible businesses, as well as a frustration with current corporate business awards and lists, which they consider in need of a shake up. 

The duo’s aim to reinvigorate the award scene with authenticity and dynamism has culminated in a definitive list which celebrates the incredible achievements of some of the country’s leading entrepreneurs.

Following the COVID pandemic which posed unprecedented economic and emotional challenges for founders across the country, the FEBE Growth 100 recognises and celebrates 100 of the UK’s founders who have led, and continue to drive their businesses, to deliver significant sales revenue and consistent profit. 

Quince said: “Our vision is to create something unlike anything else out there. We are building the greatest entrepreneurial celebration on Earth and a club that everyone wants to be part of and the Growth 100 is an integral part of that. 

“So many people think that business founders just ‘get lucky’ or think of an idea one day and are successful the next. But we know that the journey to success is anything but smooth.

“The Growth 100 will celebrate those who have embraced the entrepreneurial roller coaster and who are now thriving as some of the fastest growing brands in the country.”

Jenny Campbell added: “I’m very proud to be part of something that celebrates and supports the very best British entrepreneurs and their companies. 

“FEBE Growth 100 focuses on true entrepreneurialism. Founders are unique: their experiences, their vision and their resilience are unlike anything else. So, we want to celebrate these ‘dare to doers’ and shine a light on the incredible accomplishments of some of the finest and fastest-growing companies in the country.”
