Nova’s investment brand Nova Growth Capital has been named a winner in two categories at the sixth annual Growth Investor Awards, the landmark event that celebrates the standout investment providers who help SMEs to thrive.
Established six years ago, these awards have shone a spotlight on the providers who have made an impact beyond investment: creating jobs, boosting economic growth, and supporting innovation.
Nova Growth Capital picked up two prestigious awards for ‘Best New Product or Service’ and ‘Industry Rising Star’. The awards were open to any growth investment provider that has demonstrated a significant contribution to the SEIS and EIS investment market over the past 12 months. The judges assessed the overall impact of the business based on its impact on funding volumes, value for investee companies, challenges overcome, customer feedback, and business growth impact.
Commenting on becoming a winner in this prestigious awards event, Alistair Marsden, Director for the Fund at Nova Growth Capital said, “Two awards in one sitting, we are pretty blown away with that result. After such a turbulent year, it is lovely to be finishing it off on such a high. Well done to everyone at Nova and Nova Growth Capital, years of hard work has been recognised!”
Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of the awards commented. “At the Growth Investor Awards, we’re rightly proud of the crucial work the UK’s early-stage business community undertakes every year to bring new ideas to fruition, grow employment opportunities, and underpin a flourishing economy.”
“Nova Growth Capital deserves the highest praise for dedicating their expertise to the cultivation and support of the SMEs whose massive potential is a vital light at the end of the Covid and Brexit tunnel.”
