Since its initial creation as a Young Enterprise company in 2006, Force-7 has built up a substantial portfolio of clients from across the country. A growing customer base is not the only thing that has grown, with Phil’s team expanding to over 50 full and part time employees, many between 16 and 24, and already well on their way to hitting their £1m turnover target by the end of 2011.
