The detailsMore than 1,400 companies take cloud, IT and network services from Exponential-e, which has had another record year adding another £8m to turnover to a total of £33.2m. Lee Wade, Exponential-e’s boss, says his company is in the middle of a transition. “Last year we launched our 2.0 proposition, moving the company from being a data networking provider for the last ten years to offering more cloud services over the next decade,” he explains. “Historically there has been a lack of take-up of cloud services by mid-sized corporations, but we’re seeing many companies now taking the big leap.” Exponential-e’s “Applied Innovation” strapline lives on, with the company investing “substantially” in innovation. “Innovation drives our growth, and it isn’t that difficult to do when you’ve got an eye on chance and a vision for the future. Ideas are ten a penny, but executing them and changing the market is the trick.” Exponential-e has a compound annual sales growth of 30 per cent and an Ebitda of £5.1m.
