1 minute read

Our rapid scale has awarded us the 6th spot as the fastest growing company for the second year in a row.

We’re proud to be part of the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 once again. Deloitte’s annual award show recognizes the fastest growing businesses in tech, and we’re excited to maintain our place as 6th overall for the second year in a row, growing by almost 3,900% over the last 4 years - as well as being the 5th fastest growing software company in the UK.

More than the award, it’s great to be in good company: previous winners who have all gone onto acclaim after being in the Fast 50 include Brainlabs, Bloom & Wild, and LastMinute.com.

This year the dinner included other fantastic British startups going global such as Deliveroo, GoCardless and Transfer Wise.

My co-founder and Chief Customer Officer Harrison Rose reflected on where we came from:

We’re super proud of our level growth over the past few years, and are thankful to our entire team for helping us get there. Next, it’s important to us to maintain this growth trajectory and keep helping improve the way in which software is sold globally!

Indeed, when we started Paddle, we only dared to imagine we’d come this far. Having this level of growth is amazing, but doing it two years in a row is something special, and we’re determined to grow even further. The only way we can achieve this by continuting to deliver a great product that our customers love to use, so we certainly won’t become complacent!

This award marks a big year for Paddle, as it comes hot on heels of our latest fundraising announcement, which brings our total raised to $25m. We’ve helped over 700 software businesses succeed in 150 different countries and we’re looking forward to where we’ll be by next year.
