Walr awarded Rising Star award at 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 50


Recent tech startup Walr has been presented a Rising Star award in the 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 50.

Fast 50 Rising Star awards recognise the innovation and achievements of UK tech businesses who are leading the way but have not been in operation for four years and therefore cannot yet enter the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 rankings.

Lewis Reeves, CEO and Founder of Walr, said: “We’re incredibly honoured to receive this year’s Rising Star Award. 

“It’s been a fantastic year for us at Walr: we’ve made some really strong appointments at every level, launched our employee shadow options scheme, been officially accredited as a Great Place to Work, grown to over 70 employees across the globe and are heading towards £10m run rate on turnover. 

“I’m very proud of what we’ve been able to achieve as an organisation and as we move into the new year I know there are lots of exciting things to come.”

Duncan Down, lead partner for the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 programme, said: “The exceptional growth of this year’s Fast 50 is a marker of the ongoing strength and resilience of the UK’s technology industry, which continues to thrive despite considerable headwinds.

“Deloitte’s 2022 Fast 50 awards showcase the talent and innovation in the UK’s technology industry today.

“The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 awards give businesses the opportunity to be recognised and rewarded for their contributions to the UK technology sector and achievements over the last four years.

“The 50 fastest growing UK technology companies, as ranked by Deloitte, generated around £992m in total annual revenues in the year 2021/22 and employed more than 16,300 people. 

“The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 recorded an average three-year growth rate of 4,568 per cent.”
