HighQ is a privately owned software as a service (SaaS) company providing cloud-based secure file sharing, team collaboration and social networking software for enterprise customers. It has customers in the legal, banking and corporate sectors as well as government and life sciences. HighQ was founded in London in 2001 by university friends Ajay Patel and Veenay Shah. The company has offices in the UK (London), Australia (Sydney), the Netherlands (Amsterdam), Germany (Frankfurt), USA (New York) and an R&D operation in India (Ahmedabad).


In January 2016, HighQ raised its first ever investment round of $50M from Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and One Peak Partners, to help accelerate the company's expansion into the US market. This was one of top 10 biggest funding rounds in Europe for the first quarter of 2016.

Industry recognition

HighQ was included as "One to Watch" in the 2013 Sunday Times Tech Track 100 league table and was ranked 74th in the 2014 Tech Track 100 league table and ranked 32nd among UK’s top 100 SMEs in the Sunday Times Heathrow SME Export Track 100 2016.

HighQ offers file sharing, extranet, collaboration, project management, virtual data room, enterprise social networking, knowledge sharing and publishing solutions. It has three products which each cover different aspects of these use cases: HighQ Collaborate, HighQ Publisher and HighQ Dataroom.

The primary product, HighQ Collaborate, provides secure document exchange, enterprise social collaboration, client extranets and knowledge portals for organisations. In summer 2013 HighQ released a new mobile-optimised version of Collaborate which saw a redesign of its existing modules and added features including a responsive design, microblogging, private messaging, centralised notifications and enhanced people profiles.

HighQ Publisher is an integrated digital marketing and publishing platform that supports various publishing formats and channels including publications, videos, events, microsites and email campaigns.

HighQ Dataroom is a virtual data room product aimed primarily at law firms, banks and corporations to help users exchange transactional information with clients and partners outside of their company.
