The two-year programme for founders and CEOs of businesses demonstrating rapid revenue growth offers education, business services and access to a select group of mentors and investors.
Xavier Rolet, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group, said: “Having witnessed the success of the ELITE programme at Borsa Italiana, we believe that the environment in the UK is ripe for a similar programme to support high growth businesses.
“Innovative businesses are often the most ambitious companies, but to get ahead they need new resources, new relationships and new funding which many businesses find challenging or time consuming to access.”
Today ELITE announced its first 19 members, which span the country and a number of different industries.
Among them is Postcode Anywhere, a provider of address management and location services.
CEO Guy Mucklow said: “Recognising that the company has developed a fantastic platform for growth, we have made a conscious decision to aggressively scale the business and have put in measures to make this happen.
“The Elite programme will be an important cornerstone to help facilitate our ambitious business strategy and prepare for the next stage of growth.”
Businesses which can demonstrate a strong track-record of growth can find out more about joining the scheme here.
