  • Now in their second year, the awards celebrate outstanding small businesses achieving exporting success
  • Mosaic Smart Data’s SaaS program supports some of the world’s leading banks, asset managers, and market intermediaries, with customers on every continent and 70% of revenue coming from exports

Data analytics software company, Mosaic Smart Data, is among the 2024 winners of the Department for Business and Trade’s (DBT) Made in the UK, Sold to the World Awards announced today.

Now in their second year, the awards celebrate the international sales success of small-medium businesses across the UK and provide a stepping stone for further growth and opportunity.

Recognised in the Financial Services and FinTech category, Mosaic Smart Data leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning, empowering financial institutions to gain deeper insights into their operations and enhance customer service. After its inception in 2014, the company secured JPMorgan as its inaugural client in 2017, followed by substantial investment that has fuelled its rapid expansion.

Today, Mosaic Smart Data stands as a paragon of the SaaS model, offering a cloud-hosted, fully managed solution to some of the world’s leading banks, asset managers, and market intermediaries. Exports have been a cornerstone of Mosaic’s success story, with international clients constituting over 70% of its customer base and generating a similar proportion of its revenue.

Minister for Exports Lord Offord, said:
“We’re proud of our British exporters and these Awards highlight some fantastic businesses punching above their weight and selling UK-made products around the world.

“I hope the winners serve as inspiration to others looking to get onto the exporting ladder and encourage more businesses to showcase the incredible talent and innovation of UK businesses selling abroad.”

Commenting on Mosaic Smart Data’s win, Matthew Hodgson, Founder and CEO, said:
“This award is a testament to the hard work of our UK-based international team of Fixed Income, Currency & Commodity (FICC) experts who have been instrumental in driving the successful export of our AI-driven data analytics platform across the globe. This award and recognition will allow us to showcase the best British know-how in Capital Markets and will stand us in good stead as we continue to scale globally and support the UK as a Capital Markets hub.”

The winning businesses have been drawn from a diverse range of 12 sectors across 10 categories: Agriculture, Food & Drink; Creative Industries; Education & EdTech; Financial Services and FinTech; Retail & Consumer Goods; Consultancy & Professional Services; Healthcare; Infrastructure & Engineering; Low Carbon Energy; and Manufacturing, Advanced Manufacturing & Construction. The latter five categories have been introduced as new additions this year to ensure that businesses from all sectors could enter.

Within each category, three additional businesses were also awarded highly commended status for their inspiring business stories and exporting prowess.

Marco Forgione, Director General of The Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT) and panel judge, added:
“Mosaic has rapidly grown since it was established in 2014. With a flagship product harnessing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, Mosaic empowers clients in the financial services industry to better understand and serve their customers. Garnering investments from industry giants – JPMorgan, Octopus Ventures and Commerz Ventures, to name but a few – the financial services expert now serves a global clientele, including international banks, asset managers and market intermediaries.”

In 2021, DBT launched the ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ campaign to celebrate exporting success from across the UK and tell businesses’ stories. The awards programme builds on this to further recognise and celebrate the global trading success of SMEs from across the UK.

Winning businesses receive an invitation to an evening Parliamentary Reception and receive a year’s free membership with the Institute of Export and International Trade (IOE&IT). They will also win a digital badge, physical certificate and trophy and enjoy promotional activity across DBT channels, including individual profiles to share their export success.
