The Rt Hon Philip Hammond MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer:
“Small businesses are the backbone of the British economy with a combined annual turnover of £1.9 trillion and employ 60% of private sector workers outside of London. That’s why, whether they are family run firms or tech start-ups, we are supporting high growth SMEs to achieve their potential.”
Nikhil Rathi, CEO, London Stock Exchange Plc:
“We warmly congratulate all of the companies identified in this year’s ‘1000 companies to Inspire Britain’ report.
