The 100 Stories of Growth campaign has spent the last 12 months finding out how and why founders of small and medium-sized companies are committed to achieving success.
100 Stories spoke in detail to over 250 company founders and CEOs aged 23 to over 60 from diverse sectors across the UK about what it takes to scale a business well. Their two parallel lines of the investigation focused on qualitative and quantitative research.
Through their quantitative research study, they’ve taken a detailed temperature check of what capital means to scale-up business leaders. It’s not just about hard cash or finances. But just as importantly, it’s emotional wellbeing and mental health, human and intellectual capital that help make balance sheets thrive.
100 Stories have also interviewed 100 founders and CEOs about what’s worked, what hasn’t and how they’ve managed to keep an eye on the prize. Their inspirational and motivational stories are published regularly on 100stories.co.uk.
Together, this unique collection of stories forms a candid and revealing resource for anyone interested in finding out what types of capital are needed to succeed as a scaleup company founder in the UK today. The campaign is led by Intelligent Partnership along with lead partners BGF, The London Stock Exchange Group, Smith & Williamson and The Clubhouse.
