“You have probably used us, but don’t know us by name,” says Sean Phelan, chairman and founder of Multimap. He claims that its website delivers 100m pages of maps and directions each month. The company also provides store locator services for 700 retail clients – a search for your nearest Tesco uses Multimap. With an MBA and experience as a software engineer, Phelan started the company in 1995. In 1999 a division of Telewest acquired a 26% stake, and sales have grown 114% a year from £565,000 in 2000 to £2.6m in 2002.
