Scottish based manufacturer of small wind turbines, Gaia Wind, have today been welcomed to the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) international business support program. 13 companies join the sixth cohort of the UK programme, and 31 join Italy’s tenth cohort.
Xavier Rolet, CEO, LSEG welcomed the new ELITE CEOs to open trading on London’s markets this morning alongside Margot James MP, Minister for Small Business, Consumers, and Corporate Responsibility.
The 13 new UK companies come from across the country, from Glasgow to Devon and represent a diverse range of sectors, including an alternative energy provider, a tech developer helping people across the world learn to programme and a business teaching babies and pre-school aged children how to swim.
Today’s new cohorts bring the total number of businesses in the ELITE community to 442, from across 23 countries, generating over £33 billion in combined revenues and accounting for over 160,000 jobs.
LSEG is committed to giving the British business stars of the future the very best chance to succeed, providing them with access to the right foundation of growth capital.
Xavier Rolet, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group:
“ELITE is an incredible success story; creating a powerful community of the best and most dynamic entrepreneurs, advisers, investors and business school academics from the UK, Europe and around the world. It is boosting access to finance and financial education for Europe’s 23 million SMEs, allowing them to scale and grow. These businesses are responsible for innovation, generating employment and creating opportunities for us all.
“LSEG is committed to giving the British business stars of the future the very best chance to succeed, providing them with access to the right foundation of growth capital. Today we warmly welcome the new ELITE companies, a clear demonstration of the UK’s ability to grow great businesses.”
Margot James MP, Small Business Minister:
“The Government is committed to helping SMEs access the finance they need to grow and scale up and, through the British Business Bank, more than 50,000 smaller businesses have secured over £3 billion.
“Finance is important, but fast-growing businesses also need skills and advice and London Stock Exchange Group’s ELITE programme is helping companies from a number of sectors right across the UK. It’s great to be here today watching the next group of ambitious companies enter into the programme.”
Building on the success of the ELITE network, ELITE continues to innovate and expand on its existing offering. In July 2016, ELITE announced plans to launch an online private placement platform for ELITE businesses, ELITE Club Deal, giving companies the possibility to connect directly with professional investors to secure financing.
