Double delight for Cambridge Intelligence

The data visualisation firm, based at ideaSpace until earlier in 2014, was named Innovative Business of the Year at the Startups.co.uk award ceremony in London on 27 November. From hundreds of entries, Cambridge Intelligence made it to a shortlist of three companies and was judged the winner by a panel of entrepreneurs and business leaders.

The award came just six days after the firm was invited to join the Scale Up Club, a group of 60 high-growth European companies with the potential to hit £100m revenue within three to five years. The club was launched by Silicon Valley Comes to the UK (SVC2UK) at a summit at the London Stock Exchange.

Joe Parry, Cambridge Intelligence CEO, said: “These two good news stories have come completely out of the blue. The companies celebrated by the Start Ups Awards were so varied, and each innovative in their own way, so to win the award was fantastic.

“As for the Scale Up Club, I’m all too aware of the challenges of trying to scale a business. Being able to share ideas and strategies with other CEOs – especially my counterparts based in Cambridge – and hearing from Valley legends who have done this all before has been immeasurably helpful. I hope taking part in the Scale Up Club will give us a real boost as we enter into 2015.”
