Since its foundation, the High Growth Technology Group has been fortunate enough to have met many interesting and extraordinary people. These are the people taking risks, building the future and increasingly influencing how we live our lives.
The technology sector we serve is extremely successful both in the UK and around the world.
However, we believe that by 2018, the sector will look substantially different. There will be a new group of world beating companies, many of which will have started and grown in the UK. There will be a mix of extremely successful global brands and strong, renowned niche players.
The UK will have cemented its place as one of the key centres of technology development, attracting high levels of funding, talent and interest from around the world.
We want to help make the technology sector successful.
It was this conviction that led us to set up the High Growth Technology Group, based in Shoreditch, East London, to provide:
- A dedicated team of KPMG staff with the sole job of supporting and engaging with early stage and high growth technology companies
- A single point of contact for the community into the expertise and experience of the wider KPMG network, whether across the UK or the world
- A facility to bring the experience and expertise of working with some of the world’s biggest technology companies to the UK early stage community
- Support for companies at all stages of their development – from those with just an idea to those looking ahead to a listing
- A mechanism for more and better quality dialogue between early stage and high growth companies and established corporates
Within the group we have a range of expertise and experience – from auditing listed companies, through starting own tech businesses, to helping telecoms companies integrate billing systems (not to mention a wealth of experience across a broad range of tax issues). But this breadth is nothing compared to that held within KPMG’s global network of member firms and we will make sure that this gets delivered to you in the most efficient manner possible.
In addition to the work of the High Growth Technology Group, KPMG has launched a wholly owned global investment fund. KPMG Capital will invest primarily in data and analytics businesses via strategic acquisitions, technology partnerships and other data and analytics capabilities. KPMG Capital operates separately to the High Growth Technology Group – find out more here. Contact KPMG Capital directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
