“Competitive advantage doesn’t go to the nations that focus on creating companies; it goes to the nations that focus on scaling them. One of the recommendations in my Scale Up Report is to boost the UK’s investment ecosystem so these firms are not forced to look to the US or Asia for financing. The Growth Investor Awards highlight the evolution of the alternative investment ecosystem and recognise the increasing contribution of the SME fund management community to scale up growth.”

Sherry Coutu CBE, angel investor, entrepreneur and Non-Executive Director of the London Stock Exchange
