Government-backed UK tech network Tech Nation has announced the 28 high-growth scale-ups which will join its ‘Future Fifty’ cohort, a UK-based late-stage growth programme.

Now in its eighth year, the programme has worked with alumni which have now seen a total of nine IPOs and 30 mergers and acquisitions. Previously supported tech companies including Deliveroo, Funding Circle, Skyscanner and Partnerize.

The programme is supported by partners CBRE, RSM, Talent Works International and Shearman & Sterling who bring their expertise and networks to Future Fifty.

Of the 28 companies joining the programme, a third are led by first-time founders. They account for a total of 5,579 jobs, and average 201 employees. The cohorts combined total revenues add up to £219m, with £7.8m average revenues.

Two unicorns will join this year’s cohort, FinTech firm Atom Bank and HealthTech firm Babylon Health. The majority of the new cohort are in FinTech and SaaS, and bring the total amount of unicorns to have joined the programme to 18.
