Proud sponsor of the Best SEIS Investment Manager award at the Growth Investor Awards

Growth Investor Awards

Now in their fifth year, the Growth Investor Awards recognise the stellar work of individuals and companies in the small business investment community helping ambitious SMEs to create jobs and wealth. This landmark event celebrates the providers, advisers, and industry champions who enable start-up and scale-up businesses to realise their full potential.

Eloise Ellis, Business Development Director at Aston Lark Financial Institutions says, “Aston Lark is delighted to be sponsoring the award for Best SEIS Investment Manager. SEIS provides great opportunities for both investors and those high-growth businesses seeking funding, and it’s great to see that managers working in this space are being recognised. Best of luck to all of the nominees!”

The prestigious Best SEIS Investment Manager award celebrates leading companies specialising in Seed Enterprise Investment Schemes.

The finalists for this award are:

  • Deepbridge Capital
  • Jenson Funding Partners
  • RLC Ventures
  • Sapphire Capital Partners
  • Startup Funding Club
  • Symvan Capital
  • Velocity Capital Partners

When deciding who to award the title of Best SEIS Investment Manager, the judging panel examines the performance of each finalist’s service over the past 12 months, assessing their success across business performance, investment inflows, impact on the investee, adviser relations, customer feedback, and overall impact.

“Scale-up and high-growth businesses are vital assets to a balanced economy. These businesses make a disproportionate contribution to job creation, skills development and regional productivity. The Growth Investor Awards were conceived to recognise their successes and achievements, as well as the investment providers whose support helps them realise their ambitions,” says Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director at Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of the awards. He adds,

“This year’s awards will be the biggest yet, with more entrants, more awards categories, and more attendees. We look forward to shining a light on the whole industry and I’d like to wish everyone the very best of luck.”

The landmark awards ceremony, taking place this year on the evening of 6 November at Royal Lancaster London, is key to celebrating the achievements of companies and individuals that tirelessly support SMEs.
