Deliveroo has been crowned the fastest growing tech company in the UK, notching up the biggest upward trajectory of any top tech business in the last two decades.

The food delivery startup has topped Deloitte's annual Fast 50 list of the fastest growing technology firm, now in its 20th year, recording an unprecedented growth rate of 107,117 per cent over the past four years.

“The achievements of this year’s winner are truly remarkable: Deliveroo is now the fastest-growing technology company in the history of the competition," said lead partner for the Fast 50 programme David Cobb.

"Their relentless growth has justifiably added them to the exclusive list of UK ‘unicorns’.

Mobile developer Outplay Entertainment has rebranded for the first time since it was founded in 2010.

The Scottish studio partnered with design agency JDO to update its aesthetics around the idea of “limitless fun.”

Outplay cofounder and president Richard Hare says that the team conceived of the original brand identity before the studio opened.

It was enormously successful last year, ranked the fastest-growing Scottish tech company by the Deloitte Technology Fast 500.

Outplay also reported a 1,904 percent growth in revenue since 2013.

“We wanted to take the time to take stock of our original vision for the company, the journey we’ve been on since then, who we are now as a team (in all of its cultural and creative diversity), and crucially who our players are and how our games connect us all,” said Hare in an email to GamesBeat.
