This marketing firm, ranked No 1 on Tech Track 100 in 2013, was founded in 2009 by five friends in a basement office in London’s Borough Market. It now operates in more than 120 countries and clients such as British Gas and Salesforce use its technology to acquire new customers. In 2015 the private equity firm Bridgepoint acquired a 40% stake, providing investment capital that was used to open an office in Texas — MVF’s first overseas site. Last February it acquired the London publisher Startups.co.uk for an undisclosed sum. Co-founder and president Titus Sharpe, 43, oversaw sales growth to £54.3m this year before chief financial officer Michael Teixeira, 44, was promoted to chief executive.
