Our data

We have developed a dataset that we believe is truly unique.

We concentrate on high-growth companies and the organisations and individuals that help them grow.

Our data scientists, analysts and developers have spent thousands of hours perfecting ways to find and understand these fast-growing companies, and build a product that helps our customers do the same.

We update data on Beauhurst many times a day, from finding new transactions, companies, funders and accelerators, to verifying information based on company filings, announcements and other sources.

We pride ourselves on creating and maintaining the most accurate data possible. We use a variety of technical methods to find and verify information, but in every case, virtually every datapoint is manually verified and maintained by our London-based Research team.

Datapoints on tracked companies

How do we identify high-growth companies?
We look for signals to find companies that are growing rapidly.

Background-tag Investment

Equity investment

Any company that has secured equity fundraising from any source. We are the only data provider that tracks every equity deal – even those that are never made public.

Why do we track this?

Equity investment shows that a company is ready to scale, an investor is confident enough to back it and it has secured capital to fuel its growth.

Background-tag Scaleups

Scaleup

Any company that meets the OECD’s definition of a scaleup – 20% year on year growth in headcount or turnover, over a three-year period.

Why do we track this?

Meeting the definition of a “scaleup” is a clear sign that a company is growing quickly over a sustained period.

Background-tag Accelerator

Accelerator graduate

Has completed one of the UK’s top business accelerator programmes.

Why do we track this?

The UK’s top accelerator programmes consistently produce some of the country’s most promising young businesses. We track their entire graduating cohorts because many of them go on to greater things.

Background-tag MBO

MBO

Has completed a management buy in/buy out.

why do we track this?

Companies that complete MBOs and MBIs often go on to grow quickly as a result of new, ambitious management.

What data do we collect? We find a huge range of
information on every company that meets our triggers.
