Launch of the 2nd European Small and Mid-Cap Awards

In 2013, the European Commission's Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry (DG ENTR) launched these Awards to promote the best practices and success stories of the most dynamic companies financed by European public capital markets, in particular targeting growth companies.

The Awards aim to highlight the best European small and mid-sized companies who have gained access to capital markets via an Initial Public Offering in order to encourage more companies to access public capital markets to enable economic growth. DG ENTR organised these Awards in cooperation with two associations, EuropeanIssuers and the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE).

EuropeanIssuers and FESE are honoured to launch the European Small and Mid-Cap Awards 2014, which are being sponsored by BDO and Nasdaq OMX and will be held on 26 November 2014 in the Albert Hall, Chausée de Wavre 649-651, B-1040 Brussels, Belgium.

Like last year, an independent jury drawn from the financial community, journalism, and academia will decide on the winners, who will be announced during a high-level Awards Ceremony in Brussels, on 26th November 2014. This prestigious event will include high-level participation of the European Commission, representatives of European securities exchanges, and of EuropeanIssuers.

Awards categories for the European Small and Mid-Cap Awards are as follows:

  • Best new listed company 2014
  • Most innovative newcomer 2014
  • Most internationally-minded newcomer 2014
  • Rising star 2014
