Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, organiser of the Growth Investor Awards, said:“We are continuing to expand our network of partnerships with different service providers, and bringing Beauhurst on board was a natural next step. Beauhurst tracks the UK’s private high-growth companies, and the majority of these companies have raised equity finance to fuel their growth. It tracks every single equity fundraising secured by UK private companies. Its analysis covers deals, crowdfunding, average stakes, investments, MBOs/MBIs, by region, types of investor and stage of evolution. And that’s just scratching the surface
Toby Austin, CEO of Beauhurst, said: “We are passionate about helping business professionals discover and track the UK’s high-growth companies. Working with Intelligent Partnership will allow us to showcase the power of our data, helping advisors and investors better understand market trends and opportunities, and provide a valuable resource for professionals across the country. We are particularly delighted to sponsor the ‘Growth Investor of the Year’ award, the main accolade of what promises to be a tremendous evening.”
Tim Haimes, Director General of the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (BVCA) said: “Beauhurst identifies and monitors growing companies in every sector across the UK, whether they are just receiving their first proof-of-concept grant, or a growth investment worth hundreds of millions. This type of information is invaluable and should prove instrumental in helping more ambitious companies obtain the funding they need to progress to the next level.”
