LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

The Humber LEP is supporting businesses to scale up in a number of ways. At the outset the Humber Growth Hub offers a full diagnostic service helping to identify businesses that can grow at a significant rate with some support. Advisers are networked into local and national business support providers and can refer clients directly to brokered solutions.

Renewable energy companies benefit from initiatives such as the Greenport Growth programme. This shares latest market intelligence and sector learning principles with local supply chain businesses and is supported by AURA, a University of Hull offshore wind research facility. Growth in the logistics industry is supported by the Logistics Institute and the Modal Training Centre, a world-leading maritime training simulator facility.

The Humber has a capital grants scheme aimed at supporting companies with their physical growth plans. It is part of a suite of financial products which include an infrastructure loan scheme and the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barriers are access to markets in the UK, and to access to talent and to leadership programmes. They are also looking for support through local leadership programmes as well as peer to peer networks and Growth Hubs.
