LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Gloucestershire offers a Scaleup 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.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barriers are access to markets, access to talent and infrastructure. They are looking for support through peer to peer networks and public sector funding for R&D and to a lesser extent through local universities and Growth Hubs.
