LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Hertfordshire LEP believes that scaleups are the drivers of growth but are not achieving their full potential in its area. The LEP is focusing its attention on overcoming some of the challenges of growing a business in Hertfordshire, specifically access to skills including leadership and management, access to finance, and access to markets.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The two key barriers to growth are access to talent and to leadership programmes, followed by access to markets in the UK. The key form of support they are looking for is through peer to peer networks, followed by general business support from local or national Government and support from banks and other financial suppliers.
