LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

The Leeds City Region’s two primary scaleup projects are now in full delivery and are having a positive impact on new and existing firms across the region. The Strategic Business Growth (SBG) project is for established enterprises that have been trading for over three years. SBG provides scaling firms with a blended package of workshops, business coaching and grant investment, and includes an important element of peer-to-peer learning. Ad:Venture follows a similar model for earlier stage businesses, but with more focus on helping newer enterprises to overcome early-stage barriers to growth.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barrier to growth is UK markets but also important are access to leadership development and access to talent. That is reflected in their desire for more support via local leadership programmes and peer to peer networks and support from local and regional government.
