International Track 200

Two self-styled internet nerds set up this ecommerce business in 2002. They claim it now sells one in three sex toys bought online in the UK. Richard Longhurst, 46, and Neal Slateford, 52, have launched American, French, Australian and German websites, and they also supply distributors and retailers worldwide. Lovehoney has the exclusive rights to manufacture Fifty Shades of Grey adult toys, helping exports hit £12.1m last year.
