Automated Intelligence (AI) has been accepted on to the high-profile support programme ELITE run by the London Stock Exchange (LSEG).

The software company is one of just 16 firms from around the UK to join the programme in its latest intake. The celebrated programme supports high-growth private companies, fostering innovation across sectors such as technology, healthcare, financial services and construction.

ELITE, based on a successful programme in Italy, was launched in the UK in 2014 and is now in its fifth cohort. Internationally renowned, 73 business from Europe, Israel, Morocco, Turkey and Russia were welcomed onto the prestigious programme in April.

Automated Intelligence provides information governance and life cycle management for unstructured data either on premise, the cloud or hybrid. AI enables organisations to easily transition to, and make the most of, Microsoft SharePoint, Azure and Office 365.

Mark Godfrey, CEO of Al, welcomed the news: “As one of just 16 UK companies joining the ELITE programme today, we are looking forward to the vast opportunities this will open up for AI, in terms of access to advisory support and leading capital markets network. In just five short years we have worked with almost 100 customers, including 65% of the central government departments, and this will undoubtedly help us in the next stage of our ambitious growth plans.”

AI now joins over 380 companies on the ELITE programme worldwide, generating over £25 billion in combined revenues and accounting for over 130,000 jobs.

Xavier Rolet, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group, said: “As the European Commission’s pioneering Capital Markets Union work confirms, to truly unleash the potential of high growth firms, they need access to finance and financial knowledge, which LSEG is committed to delivering through ELITE. It is almost two years to the day since ELITE was launched in the UK, giving the brightest and fastest growing British businesses the opportunity to expand, innovate and create new jobs. I’m delighted to have charted the successes of the first group of UK companies, who this month also become the first to graduate from ELITE and warmly welcome today’s new companies at the start of their ELITE journeys.”
