- Jenson Funding Partners shortlisted as a finalist in the fifth annual Growth Investor Awards
- In the running among four other companies for the coveted award for Exit of the Year
Jenson Funding Partners has beaten off tough competition to become a finalist in the Exit of the Year category of the fifth Growth Investor Awards.
For five years, these awards have shone a spotlight on the providers who have an impact beyond investment: creating jobs, boosting economic growth, and supporting innovation. This crucial investment inspires optimism into companies up and down the UK. And it is fanning an entrepreneurial spark that has made the UK a leading producer of growth companies in recent years.
Sponsored by RW Blears, the Exit of the Year category highlights any kind of exit strategy since 5th April 2018, paying attention to investment performance, value added to the investee business, customer feedback and overall impact. Jenson Funding Partners will compete for the award alongside four other impressive finalists: Beringea, Maven Capital Partners, Mercia Asset Management and Parkwalk Advisors.
Commenting on becoming a finalist in this prestigious awards event, Sarah Barber, CEO, “It is great to be recognised for this award amongst tough competition and we are delighted to be finalists. We have now had four exits from our SEIS portfolio providing a return for our investors and look forward to more successes.”
Winners of all the awards categories will be announced at an exclusive black-tie dinner hosted for over 450 guests on November 6 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.
“Now in their fifth year, the Growth Investor Awards have rightly become a landmark event in the calendars of the UK’s SME investment community. For one evening each year we celebrate the inspiring individuals and leading organisations whose talents and commitment helps entrepreneurs to power the UK’s economic growth”, says Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of these long-standing awards.
He adds: “I look forward to shining a much-needed spotlight on all of these providers on November 6 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel. To reach the finalist stage in such a competitive field of entrants is a huge achievement.”
Finalists have been chosen by Intelligent Partnership’s research team, guided by an advisory board. Their entries have now been passed to the second round of judging, carried out by at least three people from an independent panel of 35 judges to provide a diverse mix of qualified perspectives. All of the judges’ scores are collated to determine the winner, with all finalists receiving a personalised feedback and benchmarking report to provide insight about areas for improvement.
