SUPPORTING GROWTH BUSINESSES - THREE FAST GROWTH 50 FIRMS MAKING THEIR MARK INTERNATIONALLY
Business Thinking is the bank's new initiative to find and reward the UK's best business thinkers. Through a series of networking events, it will enable businesses to exchange ideas, create new contacts and challenge their thinking.
This includes visits by the companies to international "Thought Exchanges" to Hong Kong, New York, Sao Paulo, Dubai and Paris where they will get the chance to network, meet local businesses, learn from thought leaders and explore international business potential.
I am pleased to say that three of the six Welsh finalists companies are Fast Growth 50 firms, namely Excelerate Technology (fastest growing firm in knowledge and creative industries 2011), TBDUK (Sustainable Growth winner 2009 and 2010) and Epitiro (Sustainable Growth winner 2010).
The overall winner will be announced at the end of the year and let's hope it's a Welsh company in 2011.
