Back on the road with Backing Business Ambition

As one of the UK’s most active investors, we’ve been partnering with ambitious management teams for more than 35 years, supporting the growth of their businesses.

Every one of the teams we’ve backed has exuded ambition. From iconic consumer brands like Fever-Tree and Joules to innovative manufacturers such as Bifold Group and MB Aerospace.

It’s the common thread that links these companies and ultimately the secret of their success.

Last year, in recognition of this and in partnership with the Daily Telegraph, we launched a new initiative to showcase some of Britain’s most ambitious and inspiring businesses. More than 30 outstanding companies shared their success stories of growth, exporting, leadership and innovation.

This year, we’re taking our Backing Business Ambition tour back on the road in search of more than 50 such firms.

We’re scouring the heartlands of England, Scotland and Wales to create a unique map of the nation’s most entrepreneurial activity, shining a spotlight on those companies that are standing head and shoulders above the rest - those that are showing real determination to grow, to export, to innovate and to lead.

Over the course of 2017 we’ll be sharing their stories here. Join us.
