LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Coventry and Warwickshire uses data on turnover and number of employees to identify scaling businesses.

Account managers, who have focused on scaleups since 2014, are responsible for strategically coordinating district plans working as a whole team to ensure a joinedup approach.

The LEP has a well-developed system of peer to peer networks including a network of experienced business mentors and leadership programmes. In 2017, it established a Scaleup Academy which focuses on two key points in the business cycle – the phase of initial growth and when a natural growth spurt takes place or is needed.

A recent innovation is the CW Connect Portal that enables local scaleups to develop businesses opportunities and highlight the structures and qualifications they need to compete for such opportunities.

Launching an annual fortnight-long Business Festival with a wide-ranging programme of events hosted by organisations from across the region, will bring businesses together to encourage collaboration, networking, learning and sharing opportunities.

Other programmes available include:

  • Innovate 2 Succeed which provides scaleups with funded coaching, tools and expertise to stimulate innovation access finance and markets, commercialise and grow;
  • KEEN which provides graduate placements and academic for dedicated projects;
  • Innovation Networks which provides grants for scaling businesses who are working with at least 2 other businesses to develop innovative products, processes or services.
