Over the past few years Scotland has been widely recognised as a hub for tech innovation, and the sharp rise in tech start-ups last year across the country, referenced by the BBC recently, couldn’t be more encouraging.
Our journey began back in 2010, and since then we’ve grown exponentially, thanks to support from our investors; Silicon Valley partners, and most of all the amazing talent we’ve employed across all areas of the business.
And this year is no different. We are launching new products, platforms and employing even more people as we continue to lead the way in virtualizing the world through big data capture and virtual reality applications. The growth we’ve seen in the last year alone, going from 20 employees to now over 50, is hugely positive for us as a business, a brand, an employer, and a Scottish tech company.
We were recently recognised as the third fastest growing Scottish company in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA, and placed 270th on the overall list; reflective of this rapid growth. This is as a result of establishing new technologies for the VR and AR markets, alongside key relationships with global technology giants, such as Google, Intel and Sony. It’s an exciting time for us, and for Scottish tech in general — similarly, the Scotsman reported a 77% increase in Scottish start-ups last year — so with this, we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
