Spartan Global wins BVCA ‘Vision 2022’ growth award

Sparta Global has been recognised by the British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA)'s ‘Vision 2022’ initiative, for exceptional performance in 2021 across growth, competitiveness, innovation and ESG factors.

The BVCA’s Vision 2022 Series recognises the best teams backed by private equity and venture capital, with judging criteria including growth, competitiveness, innovation and ESG factors over the course of 2021. Vision 2022 represents an evolution of BVCA’s Management Team Awards, which existed for over a decade, and briefly evolved into “Adapting with Purpose” in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The judges recognised Sparta’s “very strong” ESG angle and how it empowers underrepresented groups from less privileged backgrounds to train and find employment within the business and the wider Sparta Global client network. Its focus on ED&I was also highly commended, as was its excellent growth in general.

Sparta Global CEO, David Rai says; “At Sparta Global, we believe the future of tech talent must be reflective of today's society – innovative, creative and inclusive. This is why we are committed to hiring and training thousands of passionate young people with the potential to succeed in in-demand business and technology areas.

ED&I requires an ongoing commitment and is critical to Sparta Global’s ability to deliver these emerging technologists to the businesses who can benefit from their skills, leadership potential and passion for digital. We are incredibly proud to have our ESG values and dedication recognised by a leading body like the BVCA, and to see our continued growth mean more opportunities for talent and employers in the future”.

Sparta Global is an Inflexion portfolio company, and joined four other Inflexion companies being recognised in BVCA’s Vision 2022 Series, an accolade awarded to only 15 private equity-backed businesses in the UK this year; K2 Partnering Solutions, Rosemont Pharmaceuticals, Sparta Global and Chambers and Partners.

The four businesses recognised reflect the positive value created through hands-on collaboration with Inflexion’s Buyout Fund, dedicated minority investment Partnership Capital Fund and lower mid-market Enterprise Fund.
