Fast Track 100

In 1999, Robert Hamilton founded Instant Offices to provide a consolidated directory of international office space. In 2006 the business expanded its services, renting offices and providing property services to clients, and says it now deals with 70,000 new customers each year. The London company has offices in Britain, France, Germany, America and Australia, renting space from suppliers and managing sites including locations in Hollywood’s Century City, Dubai’s Silicon Oasis and downtown Sydney. Last year the company launched a partnership with Sir Stelios Haji-loannou’s Easy Group to provide start-up entrepreneurs with cheap and flexible office space. Easy Office provides a directory of business rooms that users book and pay for online. Sales grew 65% a year from £1.2m in 2005 to an annualised £5.3m in 2008.
