ASPECT.CO.UK NOMINATED BY LORD YOUNG AND SIR TERRY LEAHY AS ONE OF BRITAIN’S BRIGHTEST BUSINESS TALENTS on Fri 24th May, 2013

www.aspect.co.uk is a leading property maintenance and refurbishment company operating across the domestic and commercial sectors, 24 hours per day. With the tagline – ‘one call property care’, www.aspect.co.uk manages all maintenance issues, from the drains to the roof and everything in between.

The ACCELERATE 250 will be meeting for the first time at ACCELERATE 2013, Britain’s first flagship festival dedicated to high-potential businesses that is set to be held in Liverpool on June 27.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

Willam Davies at aspect.co.uk, said: "Working alongside co-founder, Nick Bizley, we have developed a business that we are proud of, and we are delighted to have been selected for this prestigious accolade.

"Small businesses play such an important role in society today; in terms of employment and boosting the economy. Our company continues to grow, and to recruit new people across the business - even more exciting times lie ahead for us."

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.

“Members will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on how to make the successful transition from start-up to high-growth business.”
