LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

In 2017 GFirst has created a Scale Up peer to peer network of 30 scaling businesses who are invited to 6 sessions over a 6 month period.

This familiarity and frequency of attendance has brought about shared experiences and application of lessons learnt throughout the programme.

The engagement of Growth Guides to tackle key barriers to growth facing the scaleups in Gloucester provides an opportunity to seek expertise. A mix of private and public sector actors from the ecosystem are brought together to support these peer to peer networking events. These include Ernst and Young to deliver sessions on product and processes looking at the key issue of disruption and innovation, and systems and IT looking at technology delivery and change. Other sessions have focused on talent management, leadership and leading change, Finance and how to access it, as well as sales strategy.

The LEP will continue to encourage this expert-led peer to peer element in 2018.
