Back in 2016, it was revealed that hedgehog lab were on-course for a third successive year of over 100% growth. Momentum remained with them throughout 2017, as the consultancy secured £1m of investment from Maven Capital Partners to help further accelerate their development.

Sarat Pediredla said: “We’re ecstatic that our growth has been recognised by Inc. as this is an achievement that places us alongside some of Europe’s most impressive and well-known brands.

“The fact we feature alongside companies such as Dyson really helps to demonstrate the magnitude of the accomplishment. It’s one that is a testament to the hard work, determination and talent of our team.

“In the years Inc. have measured as part of their rankings, we made a very conscious effort to grow our presence globally. To have our work recognised on such an international scale really vindicates such decisions.”
