Small and medium enterprises are often the most ambitious, but to get ahead they need new resources, new relationships and new capital.

To help enterprises achieve their growth targets we have created ELITE, a unique platform of integrated services. ELITE offers enterprises the industrial, financial and organisational skills they need to address the challenges of international markets.

ELITE is aimed at the cream of Italian enterprises, and offers a three-phase-programme to help them chart the route to success:

  • Supporting them in a unique process of cultural and organisational change
  • Introducing them to the capital markets
  • Enhancing relations with the banking and enterprise systems
  • Fostering internationalisation

The programme is divided into three phases:

Get Ready

SMEs need new instruments to help them develop their projects and address all the changes taking place daily in their sector.

As well as helping companies boost visibility, productivity and efficiency, ELITE also offers them new opportunities. But to take advantage of these opportunities calls for a cultural and organisational turnaround, of the kind that underlies all processes of innovation and entrepreneurial development.

The first phase of the ELITE programme stimulates change through an innovative approach involving businessmen, successful managers and experts.

An 8-day programme broken down into four modules, coordinated by the Academy of Borsa Italiana and Bocconi University, to provide people with the required operational skills.

Get Fit

In the Get Fit phase, all the suggestions and guidelines mastered during the Get Ready phase are put into practice.

Using a self-assessment test, the company can identify the areas for improvement to work on, targeting achievement of the ELITE Quality Certification on completion of training: this is assigned to companies of outstanding excellence that are ready for the Get Value phase.

Throughout the Get Fit phase the company and the management can count on the support of the ELITE Team, a group of professionals tailored to the specific needs the company has.

Get Value

From the very first day in ELITE there is an all-round support, even for marketing and communication. The management of the company will be engaged in all the initiatives designed to boost the brand and ranking with investors, suppliers, customers and other stakeholders. The ELITE Quality certification gives the company access to a select international community of investors, professionals and companies.
