LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Cheshire and Warrington LEP has a ‘Scale Up Programme’ providing targeted services, developing partnerships, and establishing a peer-to-peer mentoring scheme.

The LEP is using a series of digital data sources and social media platforms to identify the scaleup businesses in the area as well as recognise trends in their growth when they would benefit from information on the provision available.

Growth experts are available to give advice, they are generalists with experience in business, including managing and running their own scaleups. The next step is to further gear up the resourcing to create a broader dedicated Scaleup Service with specialist scaleup advisers.
