Kimble Applications Named to TechNation Future Fifty
Kimble, a high growth UK tech company, one of 24 UK scale-ups inducted into Government programme for 2019
London (27-3-2019) — Today, Kimble Applications, the global leader in professional services automation software (PSA), announces that it has been named to the prestigious Future Fifty programme by TechNation, the Government-funded network setup to make the UK the best place to imagine, start and grow a digital business. It is yet another major milestone for Kimble as it continues its rapid global growth.
Future Fifty is a leading programme that enables the UK’s most successful late-stage tech companies to come together, build a powerful and supportive network, and problem-solve with peers. With the help of the tech community, the programme supports these companies in achieving their global ambitions, creating jobs and opportunities across the UK, and inspiring the next generation in Britain’s tech ecosystem. This year, 24 companies have been inducted into the programme and will benefit from access to a powerful peer network, a tailored programme of masterclasses to help take businesses to the next level, and direct contact to senior decision-makers in Government.
The Future Fifty alumni include some of the UK’s most successful tech companies, including Funding Circle, TransferWise, Dark Trace, Skyscanner, Just Eat, Deliveroo, OnFido, Just Giving, Zoopla and Zopa.
Kimble’s recent traction and growth were recognised by the Future Fifty judges this year. The company secured investment last year from Accel-KKR, a leading Silicon Valley technology-focused investment firm and has consistently exceeded 50 per cent revenue growth over the last several years. Kimble significantly ramped up international expansion last year with over 50% of new customers added being in the USA and the company now has 5 offices in the U.S. (Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, Park City and San Francisco).
Earlier this month Kimble announced a major coup in the form of former Sage and Micro Focus CEO Stephen Kelly joining its board to further help with its ambitious global growth plans.
Kimble co-founder and CEO Sean Hoban said: “The Future Fifty has been home to many of the UK’s tech unicorns and has been a major support for Britain’s best scale-ups to move to the next level in both the UK and abroad. The recognition and support on offer from TechNation is a huge win for Kimble and will be another string to our bow as we look to make Kimble one of the UK’s most successful tech exports.”
