Panaseer has made The Leap 100 2017 – a community of the most exciting, fast-growth companies in the UK – launched by London law firm Mishcon de Reya and business publication City A.M. and nominated in partnership with Seven Hills and The Entrepreneurs Network. To be considered for The Leap 100, companies needed to demonstrate a recent history of rapid revenue growth, as well as ambitious plans for the future.
Panaseer was founded in London in 2014 by noted computer scientist Nik Whitfield, and a team of cyber security experts from BAE Systems. It has developed an extensible big data analytics platform to give Boards, CISOs, and security teams continuous, joined-up visibility of business risk from cyber. Earlier this year Panaseer announced that it would be expanding to the US and opening an office in New York in response to strong client demand from its growing portfolio of global financial service customers.
Nik Whitfield, CEO, Panaseer, comments: “Being recognised in the Leap 100 is hugely rewarding for the team – we have worked so hard over the last couple of years to build a product that can redefine our sector. Cybersecurity is undergoing a fundamental shift – Executives want and need insight into their business risk from cyber, and want decisions to be based on facts, not gut instinct. Our analytics platform addresses this and the response from industry and customers has been phenomenal – this accolade is further support and we are thrilled to be in such great company with the other fast-growth businesses included in the list.”
For the third year running, The Leap 100 will support entrepreneurs as they experience the highs and lows of fast growth, bringing together founders and business leaders to share their ideas and experiences. Click here for the full 2017/18 list, which is neither ranked nor exhaustive.
Nick Davis, Head of Corporate at Mishcon de Reya, said: “Since launching The Leap 100 in 2015 we now have 300 fast growth businesses in The Leap community. Scaling-up is challenging and is usually a highly dramatic time for businesses. Over the course of this year, we will gather together these businesses to facilitate debate and discussion around the factors that impact them the most, especially in the period leading up to Brexit. It is always so interesting to assemble these businesses during this stage of their growth and to hear their unique insights.”
Christian May, Editor of City A.M., said of the list: “In the wake of Britain’s vote to leave the EU, the SME community continues to thrive. The Leap 100 is a very nimble selection of UK businesses – all flying in the face of the uncertainty that is Brexit to pursue rapid and sustainable growth. For this reason, The Leap 100 2017 is particularly inspirational, showcasing successful innovation, brand recognition and expansion into new markets and, of course, leadership and tenacity.”
