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.
