Unruly was today named among the second 25 companies in the Future Fifty programme. Unruly COO and co-founder, Sarah Wood, shares her excitement at being included in the government-backed scheme, which rigorously selects the UK’s highest potential, high-growth companies
It’s 3 years since the launch of TechCity and I’ll never forget the day it was announced by David Cameron on Brick Lane.
The event was held in the Truman Brewery, where we were based at the time, and when we heard that UK Tech royalty and Government were descending on our corner of the world a cohort of Unrulies ran downstairs into the street and staged a flash mob outside the event – holding up our social media cushions and our Unruly logo cushions so that everyone saw us as they exited the building.
Some people thought we were picketing the launch, others thought we were sponsoring the launch!!! It was the best guerrilla marketing move evuh.
As members of the Future Fifty, we were invited to the opening of market trading at the London Stock Exchange this morning (pictured above).
There were no traders on the floor below. But, as it turned out, there was plenty of hustle and bustle on the balcony itself. Entrepreneurs are an unruly lot!
