Automated Intelligence (AI) has graduated from a prominent business support and capital raising programme run by London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG).

The innovative software and services company has completed the 18-month long ELITE programme, joining 100 other organisations in the UK since 2014.

ELITE is a programme of structured engagement, developing and supporting ambitious private companies through their next stage of growth.

AI was one of just 16 firms from around the UK to join ELITE in its fifth cohort in April 2016.

Partnered with Imperial College Business School, ELITE delivers education, business support, mentoring and access to an ecosystem of professionals fostering growth and innovation.

CTO of Automated Intelligence, Simon Cole said, “The ELITE programme prepared us for rapid growth and during the past 18 months, we have been able to secure £1.5 million investment and increased our staff by 30%. This success was bolstered by the access we had to peer to peer mentoring and a network of entrepreneurs, as well as the extensive education and learnings through Imperial College. ELITE has been an unrivalled process and we are delighted to join the ELITE alumni across the globe.”

More than 600 companies have taken part in the programme in 25 countries.

Automated Intelligence helps organisations to manage the increasing amount of data they hold, enforces governance across all content and enables users to be more productive.
