Did you know that the UK’s largest and unprecedented study of Mid-sized Businesses (MSBs) ‘Hiding in the Light’ has been released?


Here is an Invitation to attend a full briefing from co-author Sarah McKenna exploring the 9 most important areas and 27 key recommendations


Despite being highly successful and having the potential to drive substantial growth in the economy…

  • MSBs create more jobs

        Between 2016-17, MSBs created more jobs in the UK than both small and large companies combined.

  • MSBs outstrip everyone in terms of productivity

        They are now Britain’s most productive segment – ahead of both small         and large companies

  • MSBs innovate more

        A higher proportion are innovating and getting greater percentage of revenues from innovation

But MSBs are ‘Hiding in the Light’, undervalued and often unrecognised (compare with the Mittelstandt in Germany).  They face particular challenges – too big to benefit from incentives aimed at small businesses and too small to grab attention from FTE companies…

  • Deterred by finance and financial service frustrations
  • Face skills and talent shortages are holding them back
  • Have Directors who are more experienced but lack diversity

Come and hear the full findings and join other MSB Leaders exploring the challenges and opportunities.
