Celebrating the role of the UK SME fund management community in job and wealth creation, the Growth Investor Awards recognise those enabling start up and ‘scale up’ businesses to realise their full potential and drive Britain’s economic recovery.

Open to both companies and individuals, these Awards honour all those involved in putting investment to work in high potential businesses - from those providing investment or helping to source it to those best optimising growth capital to scale.

An independent panel of judges look for those demonstrating innovation in investment products and services; impact on investee performance; and how growth capital is deployed.
