With FinovateEurope 2015 just around in the corner, it was nice to begin the week with news that a quartet of alums have been named to the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 for 2014.

The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 ranks the 50 fastest growing technology companies over the last five years based on revenue growth. David Halstead, Deloitte partner leading the Tech Fast 50, noted that software companies were “showing particular strength” this year, with the largest number of entries coming from this group.
