LDC continues to play its part in showcasing the success of the capital’s community of small and medium-sized businesses.

In the last twelve months we have supported the inaugural Evening Standard Business Awards, helping to recognise the spirit and drive of business in the capital, and specifically the contribution of its SMEs. The event saw Fever-Tree, a previous LDC investment, nominated for the SME award - an accolade won on the night by fast-growing Nature Delivered, the firm behind the popular Graze healthy snack boxes.

We also took part in the Daily Telegraph’s Festival of Business in November, providing insights on the routes available to SMEs seeking funding for growth.

LDC’s Backing Business Ambition campaign arrived in London in December, showcasing the success stories of five outstanding companies based around the region, including gourmet ready-meals brand Charlie Bigham’s and Japanese fast-food chain Wasabi. Run in partnership with the Daily Telegraph, the initiative has travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain to identify 35 of our most inspiring firms to mark LDC’s 35th year.
