London, 17 September 2012 - BGF portfolio company Unruly Media, the global platform for social video advertising, has been named one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK, listed as 10th in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100.
The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 ranks Britain’s top 100 privately-held technology companies with the fastest-growing sales over the last three years. In previous years, Sophos, LOVEFiLM and gocompare.com have appeared on the list.
