LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

The LEP has worked closely with the CIOS Growth and Skills Hubs to develop a stronger focus on support for scaleup and high-growth businesses. The Growth Hub now offers a tiered approach to help target businesses with high growth aspirations as well as link partner business support programmes to high growth/ scaleup businesses.

The CIOS Skills Hub can also work with them to help develop the workforce. The CIOS Growth Hub developed a highly successful ‘Growth Fest’ in late 2018 which bought together 350 businesses, partners and stakeholders in a day to focus on growth.
