LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES
The LEP has interrogated a diverse range of datasets to identify businesses with scaleup potential. Indicators, such as whether the business exports, if it has accessed other programmes, or is looking to attract talent, are used as key identifiers.
The scaleup population is mostly on trend for an area of the size and make up of Greater Birmingham. Although, the city experiences a higher business mortality rate over the 2-5 year period. This means that fewer businesses than would be expected actually scaleup and demonstrates why a scaleup programme would have significant impact on growth.
Working with a pipeline of scaling businesses to take advantage of opportunities arising from major investment, particularly HS2 via delivery of the HS2 Supply Chain programme. There is a strong element of face-to-face engagement focusing on information brokerage and signposting to services.
The LEP is moving to an account management for scaleups model, informed by leading edge work led by the Hub’s delivery partner, Aston and Birmingham City University. In partnership they will develop a bespoke series of ‘growth’ workshops designed to provide an initial assessment of the growth opportunity and a basic toolkit for growth.
