Welsh talent intelligence business recognised in J.P. Morgan Top 200

J.P. Morgan Private Bank, in partnership with Beauhurst, commissioned the report out of a pressing need to provide a more nuanced understanding of the role of women in UK business and enterprise. Cardiff-based talent intelligence provider, Talent Intuition, has been ranked in JP Morgan Private Bank’s Top 200 Female Powered Businesses.  The list, published last week, recognises high-growth private UK businesses that have grown in sales, headcount or valuation at extraordinary rates. Talent Intuition, the company behind Stratigens, is ranked 186.

The report is the first of its kind and takes a broader approach, not only focusing on female-founded firms, but capturing a more diverse group of companies to tell a richer story.

Talent Intuition, established in 2018, has received funding from the Development Bank of Wales as well as private investors and is scaling rapidly though its platform offering, Stratigens. Stratigens is a labour market analytics platform that brings together data on skills, diversity and location so companies can make smarter decisions about people and real estate. This information is more in demand than ever, post-pandemic as firms re-think their skills and real estate footprint.

Commenting on the report, Oliver Gregson, Head of United Kingdom & Ireland at J.P. Morgan Private Bank said:

“We have long focused on empowering women in the workplace and beyond by helping to expand women-run businesses, improve financial health and advance career growth. The knowledge gained through this report can help us tackle systemic challenges and enable the continued success of women entrepreneurs, female funders and businesses powered by women.”

Alison Ettridge, CEO of Talent Intuition said:

“This report shows that of the UK’s 33,000 high-growth companies, more than 6,000 are led, founded or managed by women and I’m proud to be one of them, especially in the tech space where we know from our own data that females are underrepresented. We are privileged to be included on this list alongside other exceptional and innovative companies. It’s a positive indication that we are on target with our ambitious growth plans.”
