We are delighted to announce that we have won Most Impactful Investment at the 2018 Growth Investor Awards. We are also proud to have been a finalist in the non-AIM category for Best BR Investment Manager. The awards celebrate those who successfully deploy investment into high potential businesses and recognise the impact beyond that investment. Winners were announced on Wednesday, 7 November 2018 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel.
Our win for Most Impactful Investment commends our investment in Mindful Education, an award-winning content and technology company specialising in creating innovative, flexible professional courses and apprenticeships. Mindful Education partner with colleges around the UK to deliver pioneering courses that meet the needs of students, government and industry.
The investment made by Ingenious enabled Mindful Education to significantly increase their product range, further expand their sector-leading work in analytics, grow their team size to 34 and increase their marketing capacity – all without compromising on the quality of their content and technology. The company has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2015 and is now working with 18 colleges around the UK – keeping them on track for their 1,000th learner to start a course in January. Like the judges, we have been impressed by the impact such a young company has had on the sector and wider community.
