- The Growth and Innovation Forum is the UK's only growth and technology focussed investment show and is an opportunity for Institutional and Private Investors to connect with top experts who will share their in-depth knowledge of investing and meet directors from fast-growing and technology led London listed companies.

The show is organised by the team at Shares Magazine and AJ Bell Media in partnership with Cenkos Securities.

Mercia Technologies (MERC) is a national investment group focused on the funding and scaling of innovative technology businesses with high growth potential from the UK regions. Mercia benefits from 19 university partnerships and offices across the Midlands, the North of England and Scotland providing it with access to high quality, regional deal flow. Mercia Technologies PLC is quoted on AIM with the epic "MERC".

Mercia's 'Complete Capital Solution' initially nurtures businesses via its third party funds (now with circa £350.0 million under management following recent mandate wins) and then over time Mercia can provide further funding to its 'Emerging Stars' by deploying direct investment follow-on capital from its own balance sheet. Since its IPO in December 2014, Mercia has invested over £46.0million directly across its portfolio of 'Emerging Stars@.
