    AIM for the stars

    AIM helps founders and entrepreneurs fulfil their growth ambitions and potential. Sixty AIM companies have featured in this year’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report. 

    These companies span a range of sectors, with 14 of the 60 being in the Industrials sector, 12 in Technology and eight in Healthcare. These companies also come from all over the country, with London home to 23 of the 60. These 60 companies raised a total of £634m on admission to AIM and have grown to have a combined market capitalisation of £17.7bn. Between January and July this year, 10 of these companies raised a further £322m.
