Fast Track 100

Founded in 2007 by James Watt and Martin Dickie, both 38, this Scottish brewer is making an unprecedented ninth consecutive appearance on Fast Track 100. When the pandemic first forced it to close its 102 BrewDog bars around the world in March, its breweries started making hand sanitiser instead, donating more than £1m worth to healthcare charities, key workers and the NHS. In August it announced that it had become carbon-negative through offsetting, and that it had bought 2,050 acres in the Scottish Highlands where it will create the BrewDog Forest, planting one million trees over the next three years. Sales reached £214.9m in 2019.
