Tech Track 100
At BDO, we demonstrate commitment to supporting high growth technology companies by proudly sponsoring The Sunday Times Tech Track 100. We have been sponsor for nine of the last eleven years. The Tech Track 100 ranks private technology, media and telecoms companies based on their growth in sales over the last three years of available data.
Every year it is a privilege to meet and work with these influential and dynamic UK technology businesses, and partner with them to maximise their fast growth activity, nurture opportunities and avoid barriers to growth. Our specialists have the knowledge and expertise to deal with the ever-evolving challenges this sector faces.
2018’s top high-growth technology companies
On Sunday 9 September 2018, Fast Track published this year’s Tech Track league table, with 110 companies being recognised; the top 100 who made the league table and 10 ‘Ones to Watch’. The average sales growth for the top 100 companies was a combined total of £3.3bn, with a record 78 companies having secured equity investment from venture capital/private equity firms, corporations or business angels.

Building bright futures for the next tech generation
At BDO, we are all committed to contributing to a responsible business, including how we give back to the wider community and the world around us. To join in celebrating the success of the Tech Track 100 winners for 2018, we are continuing to support The Prince’s Trust charity, who help young people to build brighter futures. We see this as a great opportunity to give something back.
Our ambition is to contribute to bridging the skills gap we face in the UK and to help more tech start-ups to succeed. In 2017, we fundraised £1,380 for The Prince’s Trust STEM programme whose aim is to equip young people with the STEM skills needed for employment. We hope to beat this in 2018, and if you are interested in helping us achieve this please contact us.
Last year, we asked each of the Tech Track winners to share the key piece of advice that they would give to young aspiring tech entrepreneurs and here we share some of their inspiring wisdom.
If you would like to put your company forward for the next Tech Track 100 contact your usual BDO adviser or [email protected].
In 2017 we celebrated the talent and hard work of these fast growing UK tech companies at the Annual Awards Dinner. Watch the highlights of the evening here:
