Fast Track 100

This London firm started out life in 2013 renting black cabs to taxi drivers. Founder and chief executive Gurinder Dhillon, 51, spotted an opportunity when Uber entered the market and sold the firm’s entire fleet of cabs in 2016 to focus on providing cars to private-hire drivers. It supports the drivers on its Rent 2 Buy scheme by offering free insurance, servicing, MOT, and a range of other benefits, including an online GP service. Its 2,300 cars are mainly electric or hybrid — the company says it has the UK’s largest fleet of Nissan Leaf electric cars — and carries 30,000 people a day. Sales rose to £12.1m this year and the firm is looking to expand into France, Mexico and the east coast of America.
