Stratajet ranked 5th in Deloitte’s UK Technology Fast 50
Online private jet charter company Stratajet has made 5th place in Deloitte’s UK Technology Fast 50 list.
The list ranks the UK’s fastest growing technology companies based on revenue growth as a percentage over the previous four years. Stratejet recorded a growth of 3,634% in this time.
Stratajet was founded in 2011 by former RAF pilot and officer Jonny Nicol. The company offers fliers accurate prices for private jets in a matter of seconds and instant booking through their website.
What makes Stratajet unique is its ability to search through all the variables associated with private jet hire and calculate an accurate price. Prospective fliers can then compare various aircraft there and then and pick the one they want. The technology is opening up private jet hire to more people than ever before.
Speaking after receiving the award Nicol said: “Ranking so highly amongst such an impressive roster of companies is testament to the hard work that the team has put in over the last four years. We have strived to develop a revolutionary product that can bring private jet travel to the masses, through technology that is unrivalled in the space. It is therefore immensely rewarding to see this hard work recognised and we are grateful to Deloitte for the honour.”
David Cobb, lead partner for the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50, said: “The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 gives great profile to technology companies and is internationally recognised as being one of the most important business awards in the sector.
“The 2017 Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 shows that tremendous growth rates are still possible, with software sectors showing particular strength. They have had the greatest amount of entries in the past four years.
“The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 awards are an opportunity for businesses to gain recognition for their successes and achievements over the last four years.”
The runaway winner in the 2017 list was Deliveroo with a massive 107,117% revenue growth in the past 4 years, approximately 9 times that of 2nd place Bloom & Wild.
The combined revenue of all 50 companies combined for the 2016/17 financial year was around £1bn and account for more than 9,000 jobs.
