Helen Seaman, Managing Director at Rapiergroup commented:
“I’m extremely proud that Rapiergroup has been recognised as one of 1,000 companies to inspire Europe in 2017, and of course this couldn’t come at a better time with the overall uncertainty created by Brexit. I believe our performance over the last few years has been driven by the innovative and creative solutions we provide our clients across not just Europe but also the whole world. A truly innovative company is one that looks beyond its financial performance however, and we pride ourselves on the investment we have made in our team over the past few years. We recently achieved Investors in People accreditation at the gold level and our success would not be possible without having motivated, engaged and rewarded employees delivering award-winning projects for our clients.”
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said:
“If Europe is to have a sustainable economic future, it must back its engines of economic growth and only real source of potential job-creation: its 23million SMEs. It is critical that we continue improving access and cutting the cost of finance for fast growing companies, giving them access to long-term patient equity capital to fund their enormous potential. This is an ambition we share with the EU Commission and applaud its initiative to develop deeper and more connected capital markets across the continent through the Capital Markets Union project.
“LSEG has long been committed to supporting high growth companies. Together our 1000 Companies to Inspire Europe reports, international growth market, AIM, and business support and capital raising programme, ELITE, shine a light on the fastest growing companies across the continent and their critical importance to innovation, job creation and Europe’s future economic resilience.”
Valdis Dombrovskis, Vice-President for the Euro and Social Dialogue, also in charge of Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union:
“Europe needs more fast-growing and innovative companies as they are the backbone of our future economic development and job creation. This is why improving the ability of dynamic SMEs to access finance is one of my priorities. We need to make sure that our rules are proportionate and fit for purpose. We should remove barriers to cross-border provision of financing and ensure that SMEs can tap capital markets across Europe.”
