ech City UK’s Future Fifty is a powerful network of the top 50 fastest-growing late-stage tech UK companies to which Ebury has been selected alongside 26 other companies.

  • Five IPO’s on the London Stock Exchange, raising $1.5 bn
  • 17 mergers and acquisitions of which 11 in the last year, including SwiftKey (Microsoft), Housetrip (TripAdvisor), One Fine Stay (Accor Group) and Skyscanner (Ctrip)
  • Over $3.8 bn raised in funding across the 77 companies, including more than $1.5 bn in 2016
  • The companies have created 27,000 jobs around the world, demonstrating the extent to which tech is rapidly creating jobs and wealth throughout the UK
  • A string of alumni companies that are household names including Zoopla and Just Eat.

Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, said: “The UK has a world-renowned tech and digital sector and the value of the Future Fifty programme has been to support the fastest-growing, most pioneering companies in their final push to build mainstream businesses. The fact that so many Future Fifty companies are now household names is testimony that it works.”

Salvador Garcia and Juan Lobato, Co-CEOs & Co-Founders at Ebury, said: “Joining the Future Fifty Programme is a great opportunity for Ebury to access the expertise within government as well as other Future Fifty companies. We see this as a network that could help us grow rapidly and better serve our clients.”
