Asset Match is named as one of Britain’s fastest growing companies by Lord Young and Sir Terry Leahy
Asset Match, the online platform for transacting in private company shares, is very pleased to announce that it has been selected to join the new business community ‘Accelerate 250’, by Sir Terry Leahy and Lord Young.
Accelerate 250 is made up of the fastest growing companies in the UK today, which will be showcased at the community’s first event, ‘Accelerate 2013’, in Liverpool at the end of June.
Asset Match will join the likes of Ella’s Kitchen, Feelunique.com and Fever Tree to represent Britain’s “vital 6%“ which create half of all new jobs in the UK.
The event aims to raise the profile of the UK’s fastest growing businesses, and to provide insight into how they benefit the UK economy.
Over 1,000 delegates will gather in Liverpool on 27th June from a wide range of industries, including fashion, food, pharmaceuticals and finance.
Former Tesco chief executive, Sir Terry Leahy, commented: “It’s our belief that Britain’s prosperity in the 21st century global economy is going to be built on the success of high-potential, fast-growth businesses.
“That is why, this June, we will be assembling a new group of Britain’s brightest and best businesses to put them at the heart of Britain’s economic renaissance.”
Iain Baillie and Stuart Lucas, co-founders of Asset Match, added: “We are thrilled that Asset Match has been identified as one of the UK’s most high-potential small businesses. This recognition will help us achieve our ultimate goal of encouraging and enabling equity investment in UK private companies.”
