Husband and wife Gavin and Jill Rose started NS Optimum in 1995 to surf the wave of IT roll-outs in schools. Although most of their clients are state secondary schools, they have won lucrative contracts from the likes of Uppingham and Harrow schools to build networks. Based in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, the company has boosted its sales 49% a year, from £2.9m in 1998 to £6.4m in 2000.
