We at OpenGenius (the creators of DropTask), achieved a Welsh first this week, by being selected to join the London Stock Exchange’s Elite UK. The Elite UK community includes over 520 businesses, from across 26 countries and 36 sectors, so we’re thrilled to be the first Welsh firm on this special accelerator programme. OpenGenius has already seen excellent growth globally, and we can’t wait to drive that forward with ELITE. We’re so excited to see what the future holds for us – watch this space!
Here’s a word from our CEO, Chris Griffiths…
“We are delighted to be the first company in Wales to be accepted on London Stock Exchange Group’s ELITE programme. Wales is a great location to build and grow tech based companies and this is why we decided to build Tec Marina, our 20,000 sq ft ‘Silicon Valley’ style headquarters, near Cardiff.
Our cloud based productivity tool DropTask.com continues to grow globally with over 80% of our users overseas. We feel this opportunity with ELITE will help us accelerate the business over the next 18 months to put us in a position for a subsequent flotation.”
