ActiveQuote MD Dr Richard Theo recognised for innovation and business growth by two entrepreneurship awards in just two months

Published on 24/11/2015

Richard Theo, founder and Managing Director of ActiveQuote Ltd. was named Technology Entrepreneur of the Year at the Wales Entrepreneur Awards 2015, just weeks after being named Entrepreneur of the Year at the Cardiff Business Awards in September.

ActiveQuote Ltd. also appeared in the 2015 Wales Fast Growth 50 list, published in the Western Mail in November, as one of the fastest growing firms in Wales and was named Fastest Growing firm in Cardiff in the 2014 Fast Growth 50 Awards.

Over 300 companies entered the inaugural Wales Entrepreneur Awards, 2015, in categories that included Retail, Creative, Fashion and Manufacturing. Winners were announced at a black tie dinner at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

ActiveQuote was launched in 2009 and enjoys strong year-on-year growth, increasing turnover by over 400% between 2010-14 and expanding from just 20 staff in 2011 to over 110 this year.

Richard Theo is an entrepreneur with a passion and enthusiasm for technology that has driven him to establish and grow a string of successful technology-based start-up companies, including, SoftSwift and Avantis Systems Ltd. Richard’s latest venture, Wealthify, is a new online service that aims to make investing accessible to everyone and is due to launch in the New Year.

Richard Theo, Managing Director at ActiveQuote said: “To be recognised once for your hard work and effort is a thrill, to be recognised twice is a real honour and a strong endorsement of how much we have achieved with ActiveQuote in a relatively short space of time. I attribute our success in part to the support of the fantastic team of people I’m surrounded by, as well as to the supportive and creative environment the Welsh Government has made for local businesses. As the New Year approaches, I’m very excited about the launch of our latest project, Wealthify and the possibilities it might bring.”

No.1 health insurance broker as rated by customers

Proactive, efficient, and offered me insurance I need. I would say half price I would end up paying if I did it by myself. Many thanks.

Excellent service. Explained everything in detail and really helped to find the right insurance best suited to my needs - which wasn't necessarily the most expensive.
