Evoke rank in the top 50 fastest growing tech firms in the North of England for third year in a row
We are excited to have held our spot in the top 50 fastest growing tech firms in the north, ranging at number 46 in the GP Bullhound Northern Tech awards, announced at a ceremony in Edinburgh last night. For the third year in a row we have held our position in the top 50, along with a number of other firms from the Liverpool City region, proving that the North West is a great place to innovate and build a business!
The Northern Tech Awards are now in their fifth year and Hugh Campbell, managing partner of GP Bullhound, struck an upbeat note about the health of the UK’s tech sector in 2017.
He said: “The UK technology sector continued to demonstrate its prominence across Europe, securing over $5.4 billion in VC funding – more than twice its nearest rivals in Germany and France.”
Data compiled by the technology advisory and investment firm showed that the 100 companies generated £4.5bn in 2017, more than double the 2016 figure of £1.9bn. With average growth over the past three years above 40% and forecast growth of 70% over the past 12 months, evoke continues to thrive. Chief Technical Officer and co-founder Dean Ward said “Our top 50 ranking for a third year is testament to our commitment to sustainable growth and investment in our staff and facilities. Our move to our new purpose-built HQ earlier this year allows us more space and freedom to increase our manufacturing capacity and invest in R&D so we hope to be even higher up the list next year!” Read more about the awards here.
