Wednesday, November 14, 2018
The London Stock Exchange Group, attracted by Ohio’s ease of doing business, strong economy, and high concentration of vibrant small and medium-sized businesses, has initiated a groundbreaking partnership with JobsOhio to help those businesses grow.
The collaboration will provide ambitious Ohio companies with access to the exchange’s ELITE business training program, designed to support business leaders in their growth aspirations, promote global partnership opportunities and facilitate access to funding options.
Initiated in Italy in 2012 as a growth engine to stimulate the weakened economy and create jobs, the ELITE program quickly took off globally. Today, its network consists of more than 900 businesses spread across 34 sectors and 32 countries. Program graduates exhibit up to seven times the revenue growth and up to four times the job creation compared to their industry peer group.
The Ohio program marks the launch of ELITE USA, offering Ohio’s companies first access to ELITE’s best growth practices and global network of companies and advisors.
