LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Cumbria is developing a programme for scaleups based on leadership development, investment, trade and export awareness. The LEP has been using existing data as a first step to discover suitable scaleup companies to target.

A significant part of this is to work with large corporations based in Cumbria to develop local supply chain knowledge, overcoming barriers to accessing new customers and markets at a local level, for scaleups.

Existing networks are being used as a knowledge transfer network and scaleups are invited to participate in this.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barriers to growth are access to talent and infrastructure, alongside UK markets and the right bank finance. They are looking for support from LEPs and Growth Hubs, alongside peer to peer networks.
