AFR Fast Starters Award

23 March, 2020

We are delighted today to be recognised by The Australian Financial Review as one of the fastest growing start-ups in Australia. Escient placed at number 10 in the AFR Fast Starters list for 2020.

Placing in the AFR top ten is an accomplishment we couldn’t have achieved without having extraordinary clients, and the hard work and commitment of the whole Escient team.

Over the past three and a half years we’ve worked tirelessly to build relationships of trust, and we’ve seen our client base grow to almost 100. Last year alone we completed 225 projects. Our team is now more than 100 strong, all of whom exemplify our values of selflessness, courage and creativity.

Mike Walters, Group CIO of RAA, recalls their first engagement with Escient back in 2016. From the outset, he was excited by what Escient was offering and he could see the benefit of the partnership to RAA. Reflecting on that first experience, Mike said:

“The whole digital paradigm is really driving an enormous amount of disruption. Escient helped us by showing a deep understanding of our business practices, and how we could evolve. The partnership with Escient was shown in their skills: they helped us collaborate on the problem by bringing innovative thinking and new capabilities that are driving the modern world. And we got a view of what we needed to change into the future.

“I found Escient’s core values to be very consistent with our own: collaborating, being there when it counts, delivering on the promises we make. Without that level of trust, organisations can’t partner.Thank you to our community of clients and to the Escient team. We could not have accomplished this without you. We look forward to continuing this success beyond 2020.
