We are very proud to see our portfolio company Outplay  shortlisted for the Growth Champion Award at this year’s Growth Investment Awards, alongside some  household names like GoOutdoors and Notonthehighstreet.com. 

You can view videos about all of the shortlisted companies and vote for your favourites (which will hopefully include Outplay…) here.

Outplay is a mobile games development studio based in Dundee. We invested in the business in 2014, impressed by the track record of founders Douglas and Richard Hare and by the team’s clear talent for monetising their titles. The company now employs nearly 200 people, and its seven games have been downloaded more than 65m times!

They deserve this recognition, and I hope they can go one step further and pick up the gong on the night. Please vote for them!

I am also delighted to see my friends at Eve Mattress on the list. I led the seed round for them when I was at DN Capital and have been excited to watch their rapid progress. Well done to Jas, Kuba and the Eve team too.
