How to grow a fast growth business in fast changing times

Formerly Chief Executive of LOVEFiLM, Simon Calver is heading up Business Growth Fund’s new £200m fund dedicated to earlier stage UK technology companies. BGF is an independent company backed by five of the UK’s main banking groups – Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, RBS and Standard Chartered – with up to £2.5bn to make long-term equity investments in UK growth companies. During his seven year tenure at the helm of LOVEFiLM, Simon grew the company from a series of small start-ups into a multi-million pound enterprise before negotiating the successful sale of the business to Amazon. He went on to become Chief Executive of Mothercare plc, kick-starting the turnaround plan to improve profitability and growth in the UK and accelerating international expansion.
