Acora – one of the ‘1000 companies to inspire Britain’

Acora is today delighted to announce it has been recorded as one of the ‘1000 companies to inspire Britain’ by the London Stock Exchange Group, a  landmark report that identifies some of the UK’s most exciting and dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises. This comes only 6 months after being ranked in the Investec Top 100 list.

The directory of 1,000 inspiring British companies was compiled by leading sales software business, Growth Intelligence, a UK software company specialising in monitoring the real-time data footprint of UK companies. The company tracks the performance and activity of millions of businesses in real time to then compile a list of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in the UK.

These ‘gazelle’ companies as the CBI calls them, or the ‘vital 6%” as think-tank Nesta describes them are ‘of exceptional importance to UK economic growth and job creation.’

Xavier Rolet, CEO, London Stock Exchange comments on the report:

‘The UK has some of the most inspiring growth businesses in the world. Our report showcases some of these fast-growing and dynamic companies; the type of companies we believe will help fuel the long-term growth of the UK economy.’

To be considered for inclusion in the report, companies had to meet a range of criteria. These included being UK based, having a turnover of between £6-250 million in the last 12 months and a minimum of three years in operation. Companies had to demonstrate not only a positive growth in revenue over the last four years, but also an increase in employee numbers, workspace, contract wins or patent filings.
