The best of the best

The ELITE programme encompasses companies from a significant number of different countries around the world. In 2018 alone, some 224 SMEs from 18 different countries have joined the ELITE programme. The one thing they all have in common is that they are already hugely successful within their industry and are now looking to push onwards to the next stages of their development. ELITE helps private companies to capitalise on that development, in terms of seeking funding from a variety of potential sources, but also in offering mentoring and professional advice. These dynamic, ambitious companies are not only generating wealth for themselves, they are also excellent role models for other private enterprises looking to scaleup to ensure an even brighter future.
