Fast Track 100

This London company was founded in 2005 by Nigel Livingston, 33, and his brother Neil, 35, with a £50,000 government loan for entrepreneurs. Specialising in the recruitment of algorithm developers for the semiconductor industry, it counts computer giants Intel and Qualcomm as clients. Growth has come as the smartphone market has taken off, and with computer chip use also spreading to our cars, it places specialists with high-end car makers such as Audi.
