We’ve been problem solvers
from the beginning

Our story

Co-founders Toby and Stephen first devised the idea for Beauhurst as consultants, tasked with finding potential investors for British companies. They became increasingly frustrated with the process and, whilst on the hunt for some quality structured data and an advanced tool to help them, they soon realised that no such thing existed.

So the duo set to work on building the solution. Since then, we’ve built the Beauhurst platform with high-quality and manually curated data at its core.

We’ve grown the Beauhurst team to over 100 ambitious individuals, opened offices in London and Nottingham, and massively advanced the state-of-the-art platform.

But we don’t intend on stopping there. Want to see where we go next? Join our mailing list to receive updates on the high-growth economy and our own high-growth endeavours, or join our team to help us get there.
