Celebrating the people behind British small businesses

Checkout.com secures a place on Tech City’s Future Fifty

Checkout.com, a leading international online payment solutions provider, has been included in Tech City’s renowned Future Fifty programme for 2018.

Future Fifty is a government-backed initiative, introduced in 2014 to support the UK’s pioneering tech businesses. Previous Future Fifty alumni include peer to peer lending platform, RateSetter, and online fast food delivery service, Just Eat. Since the programme’s launch, previous years’ cohorts have gone on to make significant contributions to the UK’s thriving tech scene: employing 27,000 people in total, and successfully completing five IPOs and 23 mergers and acquisitions.

Guillaume Pousaz, Founder and CEO of Checkout.com says, “Being included in this year’s Future Fifty is testament to our commitment to meeting the payment needs of high-tech businesses with our solution-oriented approach. The Future Fifty companies represent some of the most exciting businesses in the UK tech ecosystem and we are delighted to join their ranks. We’re very much looking forward to working with the fantastic network of peers to continue to change and improve the payments sector and the wider UK tech industry.”.

Parveen Dhanda, Programme Lead for Future Fifty at Tech City UK, says: “We’re delighted to welcome 26 new exceptional high-growth companies onto the Future Fifty programme for 2018. The Future Fifty class of 2018 includes companies from right across the UK. All these companies face common challenges in scaling their teams and operations, and share an ambition to build world-beating global digital businesses.”
