bio-bean is pleased to announce we have 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.
In 2016, bio-bean worked hard to grow our coffee waste collection route, establishing new partnerships with suppliers all over London – including Costa, Caffè Nero and Canary Wharf. Most importantly, 2016 marked the launch of our consumer product – Coffee Logs. We are delighted that the team at The Leap 100 have recognised these achievements and we’re looking forward to working with them in the future.
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.
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.”
