Russell Gould, managing director of Everline, said "We had hundreds of high-calibre entries to this year's Future 50, showing that small businesses are continuing to find innovative ways to drive the UK economy. 

"The UK continues to prove itself as a hub of innovation and we're really proud to support and celebrate the achievements of these businesses and wish them every success in the future."
