LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

The LEP aims to support and sustain the growth of up to 100 scaleup businesses every year through the Coast to Capital Escalator Programme. This initiative currently being piloted offers dedicated support for scaleup business owners on a six-month growth programme that concentrates on barriers to growth.

Cohorts meet monthly for sessions relating to the specific barriers they have identified as holding them back. At the end of the programme they are allocated a dedicated Account Manager to support their long- term sustainable growth and invited to join an exclusive alumni programme.

Growing businesses can receive a day of specialist support from an expert in the relevant field from the Growth Champion Network funded by the Coast to Capital Growth Hub to overcome a specific barrier to their growth.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

Access to talent is a key barrier to growth, followed by access to markets and infrastructure. Their key support is peer to peer networks, followed by Innovate UK and the banks or other financial suppliers.

Success stories will be promoted across multiple channels to demonstrate the impact of the programme and raise the ambitions of the area’s businesses.
