On the occasion of its 10th Anniversary, ELITE announced its expansion across Europe, developing its network and launching its activities and services to more Euronext countries:
“We are excited to celebrate this important anniversary: ten years of ELITE. It has been ten years of working alongside companies, supporting entrepreneurial excellence in their growth path.
