A platform to facilitate long-term structured engagement between private high growth businesses, industry experts and the corporate advisory and investor communities, helping these businesses prepare and structure for further growth and for external investment

ELITE is London Stock Exchange Group’s programme for ambitious companies, helping them to better prepare and structure for their next stage of growth and further external investment. It facilitates long-term structured engagement between exciting businesses, business leaders, entrepreneurs and the corporate and investor communities. The ELITE community now includes over 380 international companies, more than 150 partners and 100 long term investors providing finance at all stages.

Being the CEO of a growth business has many challenges. ELITE, through its 18 month programme, supports companies in addressing many of these, such as strategy, access to finance, talent management, governance and crafting their equity story.

ELITE offers the opportunity for companies and their leaders to become part of a vibrant community long after the structured programme has ended. To find out more visit
