LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

D2N2 has launched a new ScaleUp Service, providing a co-ordinated support programme tailored to the specific needs and scale up requirements of selected participant businesses. Companies invited to participate in the programme are offered a critical review of individual challenges and opportunities. Scaleup Advisers signpost companies to high-quality coaching as well as leadership and management development programmes and workshops focusing on access to markets, talent and finance, sales and marketing. In addition, scaleups can join an an executive peer-to-peer network to share learnings.

The Growth Hub is working with Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University, The Centre for Management & Business Development Centre, The East Midlands Chamber and the Professional Coaching Alliance (PCA) to deliver the programme. It is aiming to create an active and dynamic support community that will help develop both the individual businesses and, collectively, the interaction and profile of those businesses.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barrier to growth is access to UK markets, followed by leadership development and access to talent. They would find a range of support valuable, all of it local – from the LEP, local universities, local leadership programmes and also peer to peer networks.
