Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive of London Stock Exchange Group said: “High growth SMEs are the driving force behind the UK economy, developing the skills, jobs and growth we need.
“But ambition alone is not enough; their success must be highlighted and their growth properly supported with appropriate finance. This elite list demonstrates the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.”
Writing in the publication, Chancellor George Osborne says: “UK high-growth businesses are leading the charge in rebuilding our economy. These companies are the backbone of the British economy. They create high-quality, well paid jobs, innovate and drive economic growth. This government fully understands the need to support ambitious entrepreneurs and ensure they can access the finance they need to grow.
“We have held the steadfast belief that –alongside deficit reduction – nurturing entrepreneurs, creating jobs, supporting hard-working families and keeping taxes low would get the UK economy back on track. Our measures to increase access to finance for business and encourage more investment have had a transformative effect on our economy.
