Exits were described by an earlier guest as mythical beasts, but the reality is much more positive. Beauhurst used their database in report that they published in 2022, we we get their Head of Research, Henry Whorwood, to discuss it. While our discussion doesn't need the report in front of you, some people will find it helpful to download it using the link below.

Henry starts off by talking about Beauhurt's data and what the report looks at. We discuss how they focus on high-growth companies, where they source data and how timely it is. We then move onto the trends that the report shows. We discuss the steady growth over the past decade and some anomalies in 202, particularly the surge in IPOs.

We also dig into some of the details that the data shows. Henry gives insight into more recents trends, discusses the growth of overseas investment and some of the patterns in different types of companies
