This Watford company designs and manufactures cloud-based video conferencing systems and software for company meeting rooms, desktops and mobile devices. It was started in 2008 by the management team of video conferencing business Codian, which appeared in Tech Track 100 in 2007 before being bought by Norway’s Tandberg for $270m later that year. Expansion into 50 countries helped sales at Starleaf to £6m last year, under co-founder and chief executive Mark Loney, 48. In May, the company raised $40m (£31m) from technology investors Highland Europe and Grafton Capital. This month it is launching a messaging app that it says will provide businesses with a secure and instant way to communicate with any device.
