Mid-size enterprises are the powerhouse of the UK economy.
Although only a tiny fraction of UK companies are in the £10-£250 million revenue bracket, these businesses employ 30% of the British work force, and generate 20% of all corporate profits. Their annualised growth rate is at 8%, which is well above the national growth rate.
Despite this sterling performance, mid-size enterprises are nearly invisible. They have no profile in the market, government does not pay them any attention, and they are usually lumped together with small and micro-enterprises via the SME label, although they are significantly different from those companies in almost all respects.
M Institute is the UK’s only policy think-tank that focuses exclusively on medium enterprises. To accomplish its work, M Institute partners with leading organisations in the UK, including the CBI, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Durham Business School, and the Quoted Companies Alliance, among others.
