Aspire named as one of the North’s top 50 fastest growing tech businesses

Aspire Technology Solutions have been shortlisted as one of the 50 fastest growing technology firms in the North according to GP Bullhound’s latest compilation of the fastest growing technology companies.


These 50 companies form the shortlist that will be profiled at GP Bullhound’s Northern Tech Awards to be judged by the likes of Wired editor David Rowan, ex-Tesco chief executive Sir Terry Leahy, and Shop Direct chief executive Alex Baldock. The final ranking and judges’ awards will be announced in March.

The ceremony celebrates tech firms that have had at least three years of revenue growth and a minimum of £1m of revenue in 2013. Early-stage technology companies will also be showcased in partnership with the Tech North ‘Northern Stars’ initiative.

Hugh Campbell, managing partner of GP Bullhound, said:

“This year we have seen a particularly stellar list of companies apply, from household names to up-and-coming disruptors.

“These companies have shown the dynamic potential of northern tech to consistently produce high-growth digital businesses. The digital economy is thriving and this is a cause for celebration.”
