Connexin has been selected by the London Stock Exchange Group to join a special programme for high growth companies.

Elite will enable the Hull tech firm to connect with professional investors, including big pension funds, venture capitalists and private equity houses to secure financing.

“You only need to take a look at the extraordinary caliber of the other companies on this programme to see what an amazing opportunity this is for Connexin,” said Furqan Alamgir, Connexin CEO.

“We’re incredibly proud to have been selected. It also shows that firms based in the North can access the big league financial apparatus of the South. We intend to make the most of it.”

The Elite community numbers 130 and Connexin is one of just 11 to be part of the latest intake, alongside North East tech and digital companies Freschfield and Redu.

“I want to congratulate the dynamic high growth SMEs that are joining London Stock Exchange Group’s ELITE growth programme. Backing small businesses are key to driving productivity, economic growth and well paid high quality jobs across the country,” stated Alok Sharma, MP Minister of State for Employment.
