Serviced apartment provider thesqua.re are delighted to announce that they have recently been accepted onto the London Stock Exchange’s ELITE development programme.
ELITE describes itself as a “programme of structured engagement, developing and supporting ambitious private companies through their next stage” and provides businesses with tools and mentorship that aim to assist them in rapid international growth. Available support comes from professionals working in banking, law, government bodies, PR and much more, with access to a community of industry experts, advisors and investors.
Previous LSE ELITE alumni have included businesses such as Crowdcube, Graze, LendInvest, Naked Wines and Unruly – all young companies who raised multi-millions and have since gone on become leaders in their industries.
“With the ELITE program offering guidance, a strong peer group to learn from and global recognition, I am confident that this will help thesqua.re in our journey of creating world class products and services for our customers.” Said CEO Sid Narang.
As a business keen to expand their hospitality offerings through the world of technology, being accepted onto a programme that has given such a boost to 90 UK companies primarily working in tech and consumer services is cause for celebration. ELITE has received high praise from previously accepted partner companies, who say it has been invaluable in improving their awareness of different forms of funding, and of what needs to be done to prepare for and to make the most of each.
Quill CEO Ed Bussey said that “the ELITE programme offers a great opportunity to focus on solutions that will help to overcome the challenges of scaling a business fast. It’s also an invaluable chance to spend time with peers at other companies who face similar challenges.”
Supported by brands such as Barcalys, Citibank, Deloitte and Santander, joining the LSE ELITE programme is sure to provide another huge boost to thesqua.re’s already rapid expansion.
