Mimecast Recognized by Government-backed Future Fifty as Technology Leader in the UK
We're having a busy week at Mimecast. Yesterday we hosted the UK Government’s Minister of State for Skills & Enterprise in Boston. Today we just heard that we’ve been selected for the UK’s Future Fifty, a fast-track scheme to support high-growth businesses like ours. It’s news that has already been reported in the likes of The Telegraph and I'm sure it will be a talking point in the industry as word gets out.
The list of firms in this first cohort of Future Fifty is an impressive who’s who of leading technology businesses in the UK. Future Fifty was launched in April by the Chancellor George Osborne and Joanna Shields, CEO of Tech City UK.
Tech City UK, the organization behind the program, named its first 25 companies that they and their expert panel believe are amongst the most promising, high potential growth businesses. We're delighted to be one of them.
As I said yesterday in my meeting with the Minister, the UK tech sector is showing great promise. This list of 25 shining stars is impressive. Outside this group there is a wealth of talent and great innovation coming from the sector to fuel further growth and success in the future. There is a lot to celebrate in the UK tech sector right now. We're proud of the part we are playing in that story of course.
