Double recognition for Ecometrica sees us propelled onto the prestigious Inc.’s 5000 Europe ranking of the fastest-growing privately held companies in Europe, which also includes notable firms such as HelloFresh, Dyson, Moo and Coolblue.
We have also earned a placed on the GP Bullhound Northern Tech Awards, which recognises the fastest growing exceptional technology companies in the North of England and Scotland.
Gary Davis, chief executive of Ecometrica, said: “The recognition by both Inc. 5000 Europe and GP Bullhound’s Northern Tech Awards is further validation for Ecometrica and our talented team.
“What is most pleasing for me is that our growth is not at the cost of the planet or its resources. In fact the more we grow the more we are helping business, governments and society to understand, monitor and protect our planet’s resources for the benefit of existing and future generations.
“Huge advances in raw cloud-based computing power, machine learning and artificial intelligence, coupled with steep cost reductions for deploying sensors on the ground, on UAVs or in orbit, mean that we are now able to harness the power of earth observation data at ever greater spatial and temporal resolutions. One example of the kind of solutions we provide, based on our unique geospatial technology stack, is our Forests 2020 project, as part of the UK Space Agency’s International Partnership Programme, where we are helping a number of governments to manage and protect over 300 million hectares of tropical forests much more effectively.”
The exclusive Inc. 5000 Europe list has been compiled for 37 years. As an Inc. 5000 Europe honouree, with a confirmed position of 2747, Ecometrica now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Under Armour, Microsoft, Timberland, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle, and dozens of other prominent recent U.S. alumni.
The median company on the Inc. 5000 Europe list increased sales by more than 254 percent since the start of 2013, while the average honouree grew a mind-boggling 473 percent. Those are results most companies could only dream of in the economy of the past three years.
The Northern Tech Awards have been running since 2011 and are part of the events portfolio of GP Bullhound, the leading international technology investment bank. Once a year the Top 100 Fastest Growing Technology Companies are ranked in the Tech 100 League Table by revenue growth over the last three years. The top 50 are invited to the Northern Tech Awards ceremony to receive an award – with the showcase presentations for 2018 taking place in Ecometrica’s home city of Edinburgh.
