We are very happy to be associated with several companies featured in the Sunday Times Tech Track yesterday. Our portfolio company, Outplay Entertainment was number 13 on the list with 3 year CAGR of 172%.
In the last 12 months we have also invested in www.imaginecurve.com and www.artfinder.com, both of whom were on the list of Ones To Watch: 15 Rising Tech Companies.
My old friends at Performance Horizon and Secret Escapes have been making this list for a while now and it is great to see that continuing. Congrats to all of the companies on the list.
More than 20m people have downloaded this company’s Alien Creeps game, which challenges players to save the world from hordes of invading extraterrestrials. Specialising in free-to-play games for smartphones, tablets and social networks, the Dundee-based studio’s other successes include Crafty Candy and Mystery Match. Fuelled by £7.8m raised from Oxford Capital Partners, Pentech Ventures and Scottish Investment Bank, last year it acquired Derby-based competitor Eight Pixels Square and generated sales of £15.6m. Brothers Richard and Douglas Hare, 47 and 49, the serial entrepreneurs behind the business, claim it is now Britain’s largest independent developer of mobile games.
