SLA Digital has been unveiled as one of the best-performing scale-up technology companies in the UK, ranked 8th out of 25 peers at the annual Megabuyte Emerging Stars awards, held in London last week.
The Megabuyte Emerging Stars awards are part of the Megabuyte100 award series which collectively celebrates the 100 best performing technology companies in the UK. The awards recognise the 25 best-performing, scale-up technology companies within the Megabuyte100 winning company universe.
Companies’ performance is determined by their Megabuyte Scorecard rating – a proprietary, and wholly independent, benchmarking methodology that assesses companies’ performance against five key financial KPIs. The rigour of the Megabuyte Scorecard methodology, combined with a specific focus on technology companies, have made Megabuyte’s award series the most influential and authoritative awards in the UK technology sector.
Kevin Drayne, CEO at SLA Digital commented, “This is a fantastic achievement for SLA Digital and we are delighted to be named as one of the best performing UK tech scale-ups. This accolade recognises our continued success and growth within the industry on a global scale and is testament to the hard work of our innovative and dedicated team.”
