Future Fifty

Growing late-stage ventures, to IPO and beyond

The UK tech industry employs over 3 million people and has a combined market value of $1 trillion, making it the largest in Europe.

Much of that value is created by companies who have been through the Future Fifty.

Long recognised as the UK’s most prestigious programme, the Future Fifty represents the largest network of pre-IPO companies in the country, with our alumni collectively raising more than £16.3bn and counting. Limited to only the most promising series B+ ventures, the programme has been redesigned to focus on themes of access, growth, and wellbeing; providing founders and their senior leadership teams with the contacts, tools, and resources needed to remove barriers to growth and become household brands.

Programme highlights for 2024 include a bespoke fireside supper series, an international trade mission to Singapore, and the all new Future Fifty retreat.

Please note that applications for the Future Fifty are by invitation only. If you have any questions, or would simply like to get on our radar, please email futurefifty@technation.io.
