What our companies say about us

Sometimes there’s questions that can only be answered by someone who’s done this before… Being able to sit in a room with 49 other CEOs, is absolutely fantastic.

Being part of Future Fifty not only provides us with direct benefits, such as peer-learning, but ensures that our experiences help shape the wider scale-up ecosystem.

Rhydian Lewis
CEO, Ratesetter

The really important stuff to us is the access Future Fifty gives us to companies of a similar size and the voice into Government, more than just the accolade.
