Fast Growth Icons is the invitation-only network for well-established, fast-growing businesses

Privitar has been chosen as a member of the Fast Growth Icons network. The network brings together the founders and CEOs of later-stage startups to discuss the practical realities of building a £100m+ revenue business.

Privitar is recognised as a global leader in data privacy software and is working with data-driven organisations across industries including financial services, life sciences, public sector and telecommunications. Customers are using its software to reduce the threat of advanced privacy attacks and protect data using the latest privacy enhancing technologies.

Jason du Preez, Privitar’ CEO commented: “Being selected as a Fast Growth Icon in Europe reflects our success and rapid growth. We are proud to be recognised as one of the most interesting and successful growth businesses of the future and to be selected as part of the Icons European network.

This recognition demonstrates the vital role that data privacy engineering has to play in maintaining trust and building confidence in the global data ecosystem. Organisations across the globe are looking to improve their products and provide superior customer service while respecting their customers’ privacy. Making decisions based on data-driven insight provides competitive advantage and we are seeing strong, consistent demand from customers that believe in building sustainable data pipelines with the trust and confidence of consumers.”

Ben Fletcher, the founder of Fast Growth Icons, said: “We welcome Privitar as a member and congratulate them for being selected – this is a really impressive achievement. We look forward to seeing their business flourish in the future.”

Fast Growth Icons, sponsored by Barclays, is helping to bridge the gap from medium to large-scale businesses. By bringing together other fast-growing businesses across Europe, Fast Growth Icons is enabling high growth scale-ups to share practical insights and experiences through exclusive events focusing on targeted discussion and networking. To qualify as a member, companies have to show considerable traction in terms of revenue, users or funding.

Over the past several years, Europe has been challenging the success of Silicon Valley and maturing into a vibrant tech ecosystem. VCs from across the globe recognise the potential of many European tech hubs such as Berlin, London and Paris.

Privitar is an invited participant at the 2019 London event on March 20th.
