The Growth Investor Awards 2020 announces its first fully digital event with the inclusion of compliance consultants, Adempi Associates as sponsor for the category of Most Impactful Investment
The complications of Covid-19 have presented a challenge this year as large gatherings of the usual 500+ who normally attend these respected awards, still look some way off. But the organisers are determined to honour the important achievements of individuals and companies putting investment to work in the small business community in this most testing of years.
In this sixth year of recognising those helping ambitious SMEs contributing to the lifeblood of the UK economy, Adempi Associates has thrown its weight behind the Most Impactful Investment award.
Gillian Roche-Saunders, Co-founder and partner at the firm, explains why: “The last few months have seen unprecedented upheaval in the UK and the world, with virtually no corner left untouched by the consequences of the pandemic and measures to contain it. This is the time when we need to step up and support each other not only personally, but professionally and in my professional sphere, those who are generating positive impacts in the companies that promise to play an important part in rebuilding our economy deserve our praise and gratitude.”
When an investment manager has selected a high quality business with bags of potential and deployed its funding and expertise to help the investee to successfully develop, growing income streams, evolving commercial relationships and expanding staff levels, it could have a case for the Most Impactful Investment award.
Guy Tolhurst, managing director at Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of the awards says, “We know that ambitious smaller companies are a huge part of the landscape of any growth economy, but right now they are struggling to stay afloat through no fault of their own. Their continued contribution to productivity, wealth and job creation is crucial and that makes successful growth investors more important than ever.”
He adds: “This year we’ve expanded our awards categories to ensure every deserving party is acknowledged. While the ceremony won’t be our normal meal and dancing, this year there will be no late night taxis to get home. But the numbers will be unlimited as our online audience enjoys thoughts and insights from special guests while we reveal the winners. ”
