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.
“That’s why this event is so important: demonstrating the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.
Writing in the publication, The Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP said:“UK high-growth businesses are leading the charge in rebuilding our economy. These companies are the backbone of the British economy.
