Medium-sized businesses are the engine of the UK economy. Responsible for employing over 7.5 million people and turning over almost £1.4 trillion a year.1 They run our high streets, design and build our homes and public spaces, and keep us all connected and online – all while competing with large corporations (and often winning).
