P2i nominated as one of Britain's brightest business talents
May 23, 2013
MILTON PARK, ABINGDON, UNITED KINGDOM, 23 May 2013: Ady Moores of P2i has been invited to join the ACCELERATE 250, a new business community championed by Sir Terry Leahy and Lord Young and made up of the fastest growing companies in the UK.
As the world leader in liquid repellent nano-coating technology, P2i has experienced rapid growth following the successful commercialisation of the technology into the Electronics, Lifestyle and Filtration industries.
Working directly with global brands and manufacturers, the company has already enhanced the lives of millions by providing invisible liquid protection to products including mobile phones, hearing aids and footwear.
Ady Moores, Chief Financial Officer of P2i, said: “We are thrilled that P2i has been identified as one of the UK’s most high-potential small and medium businesses – we can’t wait to join up with the other ACCELERATE 250 members for what promises to be the start of a fantastic partnership.”
Lord Young and Sir Terry Leahy have identified representatives from the UK’s fastest growing small and medium businesses, the “vital six per cent” of companies that are creating more than half of the nation’s new jobs, calling on them to work together in identifying solutions to mutual obstacles.
Sir Terry Leahy, former Tesco CEO, said: “It’s our belief that Britain’s prosperity in the 21st century global economy is going to be built on the success of high-potential, fast-growth businesses.
That is why, this coming June, we will be assembling a new group of Britain’s brightest and best businesses to put them at the heart of Britain’s economic renaissance. It is our ambition that the 27 June will be just the start of the journey that sees the ACCELERATE 250 become the nucleus of Britain’s future high-growth economic success.”
The ACCELERATE 250 will be meeting for the first time at ACCELERATE 2013, Britain’s first flagship festival dedicated to high-potential businesses. The festival aims to raise the profile of the UK’s fastest growing businesses and their impact on the British economy, with the ACCELERATE 250 seen as key to mobilising wider support for entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Max Steinberg, Chief Executive of Liverpool Vision, said: “ACCELERATE 2013 will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase that the business world works best when it works together, with the ACCELERATE 250 embodying this collaborative spirit and we look forward to welcoming them to Liverpool.”
ACCELERATE 2013 will see more than 1,000 delegates descend on Liverpool for a festival like no other, with Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, lastminute.com co-founder Martha Lane Fox, former All Black captain Sean Fitzpatrick and Tech City UK CEO Joanna Shields among the confirmed speakers.
The group will be working closely with one another to address the key issues and shared challenges that face all growing businesses, meeting for a series of interactive discussions and debates.
Members of the ACCELERATE 250 come from across the UK and represent industries from food and fashion, to pharmaceuticals and finance.
