Calcivis joins LSE ELITE Programme

Edinburgh-based medical devices company Calcivis has been accepted into the next cohort of the London Stock Exchange (LSE)'s ELITE programme.

ELITE is a unique programme designed to support the UK's most exciting and ambitious private companies prepare and structure for their next stage of growth.

It will help Calcivis further develop its unique technology which allows dentists to visualise active demineralisation, a key step to them practising the preventive management of tooth decay.

The programme will now facilitate structured engagement between Calcivis, entrepreneurs and business leaders, as well as the corporate advisory and investor community, through a package of education, business support and access to investors.

It is hoped the introductions made through the programme will help the business scale and grow.

Adam Christie, CEO of Calcivis, said: "We are pleased that Calcivis has been accepted for the LSE's ELITE programme.

"This is a significant achievement and reflects the LSE's appreciation of the potential of our unique technology that will, for the first time, allows dentists to visualise active demineralisation, a key step to them practising the preventive management of tooth decay.

“We are excited about this programme which will provide us with support as we embark on the next phase of our growth including launch of the Calcivis® System in the UK market next year, together with a premarket authorisation filing to FDA in advance of marketing in the US."

Xavier Rolet, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group: "As the European Commission's pioneering Capital Markets Union work confirms, to truly unleash the potential of high growth firms, they need access to finance and financial knowledge, which LSEG is committed to delivering through ELITE.

"It is almost two years to the day since ELITE was launched in the UK, giving the brightest and fastest growing British businesses the opportunity to expand, innovate and create new jobs.

“I'm delighted to have charted the successes of the first group of UK companies, who this month also become the first to graduate from ELITE and warmly welcome today's new companies at the start of their ELITE journeys."
