Everline Future 50 recognises We Are Colony as “a film streaming platform the likes of which has never been seen before by the video industry”.
Delighted to announce We Are Colony was named in the Everline Future 50 Awards last night: the “definitive analysis of game-changing new UK businesses”, recognising the 50 most disruptive British businesses in 2016. The Awards recognised We Are Colony as “…a film streaming platform the likes of which has never been seen before by the video industry”.
Real Business, the UK’s most-read SME website, and Everline launched the Future 50 Competition five years ago to identify and champion British businesses that are transforming industries. Previous Future 50 trailblazers include Secret Escapes (which raised $60m Google Ventures backing for global expansion in 2015), Funding Circle (one of the best capitalised marketplace lending platforms in the world, having raised $300 millionof equity capital since 2010) and TransferWise (the London-based peer-to-peer money transfer service which was valued close to $1 billion last year).
We are thrilled to be included in the Everline Future 50 2016, especially among such a strong cohort of British startups. It’s fantastic early recognition of our ambition to build a global business which truly impacts how fans engage with quality film and film extras.
Future 50 commented: “We Are Colony releases ‘special edition bundles’ of content to fans…showing a more personal viewing experience is possible. The mission of We Are Colony is to capitalise on gear change in the industry, building a global community of loyal and passionate fans and redefining the video on demand experience. Already recognised for its disruptive and innovative service, We Are Colony has received coverage throughout the global media. Oscar-nominated and Bafta-winning filmmaker turned distributer Sarah Tierney has put together a world class team with the aim of making We Are Colony a household name in video on demand. The young venture is gearing up to become a globally recognised brand in the coming years.”
