In Touch, an online training and development platform for elite professionals has been recognised as the UK’s third fastest growing e-commerce business and 70th overall in the FT 1000 - the list of Europe’s fastest growing companies compiled by the Financial Times.  

The FT 1000, now in its third year, recognises businesses across 31 European countries that have achieved the highest compound annual revenue growth rate between 2014 and 2017. In Touch impressed with a growth rate of 1,364% and ranked 16 places higher than their inaugural entry last year, featuring alongside brands such as Deliveroo, Blue Motor Finance and Darktrace.

To be ranked as the UK’s third fastest growing e-commerce company and 70th fastest growing business in the whole of Europe is a huge achievement for the Spinningfields based firm and acknowledges their tremendous growth over the past few years.

Over 125,000 memberships have been sold to date, with professionals joining the network to access useful resources, training, CV services, coaching and a complimentary jobs board where they can browse the latest non-executive and consultancy roles, whilst also being directly approached by thousands of employers who use the network to hire for little to no cost.

Originally focused on memberships, In Touch has gradually branched out and now focuses on three core areas comprising of B2C, B2B and global services, which has helped the business to stay at the forefront of the market.

Commenting on the FT 1000 ranking, In Touch Networks CEO Matthew Roberts said: “I’m incredibly proud that In Touch has been listed for the second year running - especially moving up the list 16 places. It is incredible to think that we started our just six years ago and are now a multi-million-pound business recognised as one of the fastest growing in Europe.

We’re still a relatively young company and have so many different avenues to explore. We officially open our new office in Chicago this month and are set to expand the B2B side of our business, so I can’t wait to see what’s next in-store for In Touch and how much we can achieve over the next 12 months.”
