The third Grand Prix des Entreprises de Croissance Award has just been won by the AURES Group, for its unrivalled growth and outstanding performance between 2012 and 2015. The 2016 Ceremony was held at the Pavillon d'Armenonville, Paris on 29 June.
AURES came top of its category (electronics and robotics sector; turnover of 20–100 million euros).
Patrick Cathala – CEO and founder of the AURES Group – received the 2016 Grand Prix trophy in the presence of over 400 decision-makers, entrepreneurs, partners and jury members gathered for the occasion.
The Grand Prix des Entreprises de Croissance award is the joint brainchild of the French Ministry for Industry and Finance and Leaders League, an international media and rating agency for top executives. This award is given to the most deserving high-growth French SMEs in 14 business sectors. Companies selected from each sector compete within categories matching their turnover (5 - 20 million euros; 20 - 100 million euros; 100 million–1 billion euros).
The dual purpose of this competition is first to publically recognize successful economic champions by encouraging their characteristically bold, innovative, ambitious and trailblazing projects. Secondly, the Grand Prix des Entreprises de Croissance award supports the development of SMEs in France.
