Tech Track 100

This company has published guides and videos issuing advice on how to reopen hotels after lockdown, as well as offering discounts and deferred payments for those unable to reopen. Co-founded by Charlie Osmond, 43, and Alasdair Snow, 32, its platform helps more than 10,000 hotels — including Best Western and Virgin properties — attract customers and convert more bookings directly via their websites rather than through online travel agencies, reducing costs associated with online travel agencies. Sales reached £9.8m last year, with Charlie’s brother James, 44, becoming chief executive in November. It has raised £20m from investors including BGF, Notion Capital and Episode 1 Ventures.
