E-commerce network Trouva secures place on Tech City’s Future Fifty programme
E-commerce network Trouva has been selected as one of 26 new companies joining Tech City’s Future Fifty programme.
Now in its fifth year, Future Fifty companies have raised $5.5bn in investment, employed 27,000 people, and have seen 28 exits (5 IPOs, 23 mergers and acquisitions).
Trouva is the curated marketplace for independent bricks-and-mortar boutiques, offering customers a curated range of more than 90,000 design-led products from 450 of bricks-and-mortar independent boutiques in over 100 towns and cities in the UK.
Trouva’s products range from home décor, lighting and tableware, storage and home furnishings, as well as fashion accessories and gifts.
Established in 2015, Trouva is led by co-founders Mandeep Singh and Alex Loizou and Glen Walker.
Mandeep Singh, CEO and co-founder of Trouva, commented: “It is fantastic to be recognised by Tech City and we’re very excited for the programme to start. Future Fifty has supported some of the biggest names in UK tech such as Deliveroo and Farfetch who have all benefited massively from inclusion on the programme so we very much look forward to what it holds for Trouva.
“This is a huge achievement for us, given we have quickly progressed from Tech City’s ‘Upscale’ programme to Future Fifty which is for late stage tech businesses.
“It also couldn’t come at a better time for Trouva, we’ve just undergone a brand refresh and we are about to expand across Europe.”
