Fast Track Awards


Yesterday our founders upped sticks from Salford and headed over to Oxfordshire.

Not for a punt down the River Cherwell or for the rolling hills of the Cotswolds but to rub shoulders with some of the UK’s most well-known companies (BrewDog, Airbnb and Pure Gym – to name drop just a few).

After debuting on the Sunday Times Fast Track list last year, Mark and Craig were invited to Sir Richard Branson’s family home for the 19th annual Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 conference and awards dinner.

Honouring the UK’s top performing private companies, the afternoon featured speakers David Buttress, chief executive of JUST EAT. and Rosemary Squire OBE, co-founder of Ambassador Theatre Group.

Known for the calibre of its entrepreneurs, the afternoon rounded off with a Q&A session led by Sir Richard Branson and Josh Bayliss, group chief executive of Virgin.

After an insightful day – and, with our strongest yearly performance to date, we’re hopeful of attending the awards again next year.
