Breaking news: Talmix included in The Leap 100 2017: the definitive list of fast-growth companies
26 April 2017: Today, Talmix has announced it has made The Leap 100 2017 – a community of the most exciting, fast-growth companies in the UK – launched by London law firm Mishcon de Reya and business publication City A.M. and nominated in partnership with Seven Hills and The Entrepreneurs Network. To be considered for The Leap 100, companies needed to demonstrate a recent history of rapid revenue growth, as well as ambitious plans for the future.
Talmix grew 300% in 2016, a year in which it rebranded from MBA & Co to reflect its positioning at the forefront of the changing world of work. Its consultant network now numbers 30,000 globally, with an average of 12 years senior industry experience.
Daniel Callaghan, CEO said: "In the last year we are honoured to have been featured in several significant industry programmes and accolades, testament to our growth and more importantly, that the world of work is changing, and in particular, the best talent is now choosing to work independently."
For the third year running, The Leap 100 will support entrepreneurs as they experience the highs and lows of fast growth, bringing together founders and business leaders to share their ideas and experiences. Click here for the full 2017/18 list, which is neither ranked nor exhaustive.
Nick Davis, Head of Corporate at Mishcon de Reya, said: "Since launching The Leap 100 in 2015 we now have 300 fast growth businesses in The Leap community. Scaling-up is challenging and is usually a highly dramatic time for businesses. Over the course of this year, we will gather together these businesses to facilitate debate and discussion around the factors that impact them the most, especially in the period leading up to Brexit. It is always so interesting to assemble these businesses during this stage of their growth and to hear their unique insights."
Christian May, Editor of City A.M., said of the list: "In the wake of Britain's vote to leave the EU, the SME community continues to thrive. The Leap 100 is a very nimble selection of UK businesses – all flying in the face of the uncertainty that is Brexit to pursue rapid and sustainable growth. For this reason, The Leap 100 2017 is particularly inspirational, showcasing successful innovation, brand recognition and expansion into new markets and, of course, leadership and tenacity."

The Leap 100 is compiled based on research conducted by Mishcon de Reya, City A.M. and The Entrepreneurs Network, into high-growth companies in the UK which have both reached, or are close to reaching, £10m revenue mark in the preceding five years. Many of these companies demonstrate rates of growth in excess of 100% year on year. Their management teams have a proven record of taking the business from start up to high growth and have the ambition to continue to scale the business over the next two years.
