LONDON, 1 March 2024 – The Alliance, a community-led professional development platform, has been ranked 42nd in the Financial Times’ annual list of Europe's 1000 fastest-growing companies.

Published by the Financial Times, in partnership with Statista, the FT 1000 2024 index lists the European companies that have achieved the highest annual growth rates in revenue between 2019 and 2022.

Since its founding in 2019, The Alliance has enjoyed a compound annual growth rate of 212%, taking it to over £14,656,000 in revenues in 2022.

Bootstrapped from the beginning, The Alliance has scaled to operate 15 L&D communities (including its flagship brand, Product Marketing Alliance) comprising over 1.5 million community members from a range of underrepresented, up-and-coming, and established professions. 

As the education platform of choice for Fortune 500 companies (including Microsoft, Adobe, Salesforce, and more), The Alliance has continually expanded its portfolio of communities to provide education, collaboration, and peer-backed career progression opportunities for professionals all over the world. 

The organisation also hosts over 130 in-person and virtual events annually, bringing its stable of brands, and extensive network of industry leaders, to 17 cities worldwide. 

Despite challenging market conditions last year, The Alliance’s growth story continued with the launch of its latest community, Revenue Operations Alliance, meeting a growing demand for peer-led professional development opportunities for revenue leaders and revenue operations practitioners. 

2023 also saw the introduction of a strategic pivot to expand its offering to C-suite leaders, with the launch of executive membership plans and exclusive summits for Chief Customer Officers, Chief Revenue Officers, Chief Product Officers, Chief Marketing Officers, and Chief Financial Officers.

Founder & CEO, Richard King, said: “Everyone within The Alliance organisation has had an important part to play in achieving this success. Our investment in people and market-leading products has been key to our organic growth, and we’re really excited to bring our expert-led content and gold-standard education to more and more businesses and markets in the years ahead”.
