Scale-Up Programmes

Manchester Growth Hub (2014)

A private/public partnership service stimulating business growth and employment creation. It targets services using data that identifies growth businesses and acts as a focal point for businesses seeking growth support.

The Hub cross-refers across a range of over 130 private and public, national and local partners as well as directly delivering a range of growth services for scale-ups. These include practical business advice, master-classes, networking, conferences and ‘meet the buyer’ events. The Hub offers more specialist services including growth mentoring, executive development, access to finance, sector specific support (e.g. manufacturing, textiles, low-carbon & environmental) exporting, resource efficiency, digital growth and innovation.

This programme is associated with Recommendation 8 of the Scale-Up Report.
