The Leap 100 2016 Launch Film features some of 2015's The Leap 100 company founders sharing their experiences as entrepreneurs and what they have gained from being part of The Leap 100 programme.
Today, Mishcon de Reya and City A.M. have launched The Leap 100 2016 – a list of the 100 most exciting, fast-growth companies in the UK. All the companies selected have demonstrated substantial growth over the past 12 months and been identified as the ‘ones to watch’ for 2016.
The list includes both familiar names, such as Deliveroo, MarketInvoice and Headspace, and those that may not be as well known, such as triyoga, Growth Engineering, Pact Coffee, Lost My Name and DueDil. The companies, which range in terms of scale and sector, were chosen because of their growth potential and ability to make the leap to the next level in terms of revenue.

The most important publication targeting the London business community, City A.M., and one of London's leading law firms, Mishcon de Reya, have teamed up with The Supper Club, The Entrepreneurs Network and Seven Hills to compile the list, which is neither ranked nor exhaustive.
Nick Davis, Head of Mishcon de Reya's Corporate department, said: "This stage of a company's growth can be very dramatic, with risks of serious setbacks and sudden lows, but with high rewards for those who make it to the other side. The Leap 100 campaign examines and celebrates the hurdles and opportunities that fast growing companies face. We launched The Leap 100 in 2015 to support a select group of some of the UK's most exciting, high growth companies. This year's list is yet again a dynamic group of companies to watch."
Christian May, Editor of City A.M., said of the list: “The UK has a thriving SME community making up 99.9% of the private sector. However, for the majority of companies, the key problem continues to focus on how companies scale in order to grow to their full potential. The purpose of this list is to showcase the UK companies succeeding in doing this, as well as identifying those that we as a nation need to be aware of – they are a triumph.”
Now in its second year, The Leap 100 will continue to poll its list members on issues of importance to fast-growth firms. The programme will also be extended to include a series of Leap 100 Power Breakfasts. Each Power Breakfast will be led by one of The Leap 100 2016 members and opened up to The Leap 100 community, as well as external guests, in order to share, learn and collaborate. The first Power Breakfast will be led by Stephen Rapoport, Founder of Pact Coffee, on Wednesday 11 May, 2016.
