The scheme, which is run by government-backed Tech Nation, helps British tech businesses to scale up by providing access to a peer network and contact with senior government decision-makers.

This years cohort reflects the continued success of London fintech firms, which made up 10 of the 24 new entries.

Tristan Thomas, head of marketing and community at Monzo, said: “We're excited to have been included in this years Future 50 programme and work with and learn from other high-growth companies in the cohort.

“As we near 2m customers in the UK, we're preparing for the next stage in our company's growth trajectory.”
