ELITE, the innovative business education support programme for high growth private companies, setup by the London Stock Exchange and Imperial College Business School, recently welcomed 16 more companies.
To mark this special occasion, CEOs from companies in the second cohort recently opened trading on London’s markets. Drawn from 14 locations across the UK, the diverse range of private businesses are from eight sectors, and include a video game producer, a fast growing pub chain, an eco-leather manufacturer and several online retailers.
Alexander Justham, CEO of London Stock Exchange plc, said: “Fast growing ambitious businesses are the engine of the UK’s economic growth and together with Imperial College Business School and the business community, we remain committed to creating a vibrant eco-system, able to support and inspire companies long after the 24 month ELITE programme. Today’s cohort showcases the UK’s ability to produce great businesses and we are delighted to welcome them to ELITE.”
