The 21 new businesses come from 11 countries, ranging from Denmark to Turkey and including four companies from Croatia, three from Hungary - based on the long term partnership with the Budapest Stock Exchange – and the first companies from Luxembourg and Serbia. 14 companies from the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region have joined today as part of UniCredit CEE Lounge, a partnership between LSEG’s ELITE and UniCredit designed to prepare and support firms in the region.

Businesses come from a wide range of sectors, including technology, leisure goods and media. Companies include Israeli 3D printing firm, Massivit 3D and Danish mobile advertising technology firm, Calldorado. Boutique hotel, Relais San Maurizio, and pharmaceutical products firm, Proton System, are the first companies from respectively Luxembourg and Serbia to join ELITE.

Currently, ELITE covers 27 countries and 35 sectors, generating over €50 billion in combined revenues and accounting for 240,000 jobs across Europe and beyond. Today, the new international group brings the overall number of firms on ELITE to 683.

Luca Peyrano, CEO, ELITE:

“I am thrilled to welcome the latest group of International firms to ELITE today.  The ever growing success of ELITE validates and highlights the importance of partnerships like the ones with Budapest Stock Exchange and UniCredit.

“Programmes like ELITE are key for the expansion of fast-growing companies, providing support in the development of these ambitious and dynamic firms. These companies have a unique capacity to innovate, create new jobs and ultimately drive economic prosperity.”

Andrea Diamanti, Head of Corporate and Investment Banking and Private Banking in CEE, UniCredit:

“We are delighted that our partnership with ELITE has proven to be very successful. This initiative underscores our strong belief in the potential of the most-ambitious mid-sized companies in the CEE region, and helps us supporting them in upgrading their business models and boosting their growth.

“ELITE is also an innovative way to better understand their needs and strategies. It brings growing businesses together and gives them the opportunity to inspire each other, exchange ideas, share best practices and identify mutual business opportunities.”
