Two Scottish companies appear in a new report which lists the 100 fastest-growing private companies in the UK.
The report, compiled by independent research agency Beauhurst and SyndicateRoom shows BrewDog and 39 and Mallzee at 84.
The report, entitled “Top 100: Britain's Fastest-Growing Businesses” identified the companies that have increased in value the most since 2015.
Mallzee has been expanding in recent years with the introduction of its retail analytics arm – Mallzee Insights; which delivers pre release product testing for many high street retailers, helping them avoid the over and under stock positions currently crucifying UK retailers.
Cally Russell, founder and CEO Mallzee, said: “It's great to have Mallzee listed alongside some amazing companies from across the UK. Over the last 12 months we've seen fantastic growth in the business driven by out data insights arm and in particular through our product testing offering. As retailers face challenging times more and more of them are turning to new ways to develop product and ensure they don't buy the wrong stock, we're now helping some of the biggest names in the business do just that. The high street can be saved but not just through changes to regulation – we need to give people a reason to go into store. Having great a great product is key to that.”
