Skyscape was also recognised as Venture Capital-backed Management Team of the Year in the South West.
The seventh annual awards celebrate the success stories of the private equity and venture capital industry, as judged by a panel of industry experts.

“We are delighted to be among the worthy winners of the 2015 Management Team Awards, in recognition of our rapidly growing business and success to date in shaking up the public sector IT market,” said Simon Hansford, CEO of Skyscape Cloud Services. “At the heart of our company ethos is a commitment to deliver on-demand cloud services to the public sector, improving services and dramatically reducing costs for the UK tax payer. We have made significant progress in little over two years since our platform went live and are proud to continue to impress with our innovative and cost-effective solutions.”
Originally an independently funded company, Skyscape Cloud Services announced a £4m minority stake investment from BGF (Business Growth Fund) in May 2014, to accelerate its growth in the UK public sector market. Established to help British high growth businesses, BGF’s support reflected its confidence in Skyscape’s business model and success in establishing itself as a leading provider of cloud infrastructure services to Government organisations, with a number of high-profile public sector customers including HMRC and the DVLA.
