GIA 2017 Finalist Logo - Growth Champion of the Year

Calculus Capital are proud to share that portfolio companies, Chop’d and Inspiresport have both been selected as finalists in the Growth Champion of the Year Award, run by Intelligent Partnership.

Celebrating the role of the UK SME investment community in job and wealth creation, the Growth Investor Awards recognise those enabling start up and ‘scale up’ businesses to realise their full potential and drive Britain’s economic recovery.

The Growth Champion award is Intelligent Partnership’s highest accolade for investee companies, focusing on scale up businesses and their founders/CEOs. The awards are open to any business that has used growth capital to scale and will be judged on how that investment and associated support has been optimised – including growth metrics and deployment.

Demonstrating exemplary vision in their use of growth capital to scale, Growth Champions are role models for Britain’s 1.3 million small to medium sized enterprises who employ 11.2 million people.

To support recognition as an exemplary scale up business, all Growth Champion of the Year finalists will be video interviewed* to provide content for an associated public vote (worth 20% of the overall score).

*Only content approved by the finalist will be broadcast.
