Britain’s fastest-growing, founder-led private companies have been revealed today in the FEBE Growth 100 and North Property Group has made the prestigious line up. The Growth 100 celebrates British business at its best – highlighting founders that are driving their companies to deliver significant sales, revenue and profit, against a backdrop of unprecedented economic challenges.

There are 4.2m private companies in the UK. Just 1% or 45,000 of these are considered to be ‘high growth’. But who are the 100 fastest growing? FEBE has compiled this list to present the 100 fastest growing, founder-led, privately owned businesses in the UK. All listed companies are profitable and are turning over between £3m-£200m.

North Property Group placed 34th overall on the FEBE Growth 100, and as the highest ranked real estate agency in the UK! NPG has shown great growth since its inception in 2017 in terms of finance, in terms of staff, and also in terms of how many developments and cities the company now covers and sells.

To be on the list businesses must be UK registered, independent and unquoted, meeting the following criteria:

  • Sales between £3m and £200m
  • Trading for at least three years
  • An operating profit in the latest financial year
  • Founder(s) must still be involved

The full 100 ranking can be viewed at

The ultimate ranking of 100 was data-driven, with companies ordered by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in sales over the last three financial years. Businesses were initially selected by either nominating themselves or through FEBE contacting them directly, as well as by accessing publicly available financial information.

Every year, the 100 highest growth founder-led businesses in the country are identified and are included in this prestigious list. These businesses are ranked in the annual Fastest 50 list, jointly telling a story of continuous financial growth in tough times through innovative methods, efficiency and skills.

The FEBE Growth 100 list shows a spread of entrepreneurial success throughout the UK including 26 companies in London; 13 companies in the South East; 11 in Yorkshire, 9 in Scotland and 8 in the East Midlands. Women are founders or co-founders of nearly a third of all winning companies with the exact ratio of men to women founders standing at 68% to 32%.   

Commenting on the FEBE Growth 100 List, FEBE founder Charlotte Quince, said: “We’re so excited to publish this year’s Growth 100. So many people think that business founders just ‘get lucky’ or think of an idea one day and are successful the next. But we know that the journey to success is anything but smooth. The Growth 100 celebrates those who have embraced the entrepreneurial roller coaster and who are now thriving as some of the fastest growing brands in the country.”

Former Dragon’s Den Dragon and FEBE Growth 100 ambassador, Jenny Campbell added: “I’m very proud to be part of something that celebrates and supports the very best British entrepreneurs and their companies. FEBE Growth 100 focuses on true entrepreneurialism. Founders are unique: their experiences, their vision and their resilience are unlike anything else. So, we want to celebrate these ‘dare to doers’ and shine a light on the incredible accomplishments of some of the finest and fastest-growing companies in the country.”

FEBE (For Entrepreneurs By Entrepreneurs), co-founded by Charlotte Quince and John Maffioli, was born out of a desire to celebrate true entrepreneurship, by focusing on the founders behind incredible businesses, as well as an aim to reinvigorate the current corporate business award scene with entrepreneurial dynamism.
