LSE explores growth of ambitious companies in Europe

The London Stock Exchange (LSE) Group will today host a roundtable discussion aimed at ‘supporting ambitious companies across Europe towards growth’. A group of high-profile investors and business innovators will gather to speak on a range of topics including the Capital Market Union project run by the European Commission and the LSE’s efforts and initiatives to support growing businesses looking for investment.

The European start-up scene has transformed dramatically over the past decade, and it is now home to a significant number of well-known companies. According to an annual report by investment advisors, Clipperton, $12 billion was invested in European start-ups in 2016.

FacilityLive, an Italian high tech start-up that is transforming search technology, by creating a unique ‘human language search’ platform, is one of the ELITE Programme companies that has been selected to present at this exclusive event.  They are also the first non UK company to be admitted into the London Stock Exchange (LSE) ELITE Programme in London.

Founder and CEO , Gianpiero Lotito is also the creator of the Small Valleys model which is producing companies to rival those created in Silicon Valley, and regularly champions the support of ambitious companies across Europe.

He commented: “The attention that a world leading financial institution, such as the LSE Group, has for the European start-up movement is a concrete sign of the importance of the new industrial generation in Europe. Also there is the need to find financial backers who will support the development of future European enabling platforms and scale-ups. The London Stock Exchange Group provides the perfect financial environment to support companies that can find, in the Small Valley European model for digital ecosystems, the perfect physical environment for their growth”.

Europe has the unique opportunity to create an even more successful tech industry. LSE’s campaign to explore the growth of ambitions companies will investigate the measures that need to be taken to ensure that SME’s have access to alternative forms of finance, and how to ensure that investors back EU growth companies.
