LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Leicester and Leicestershire LEP (LLEP) Growth Hub is interrogating a diverse range of datasets to identify and target businesses with scaleup potential.

The existing network of business advisers is already well established within the area’s business community and actively engages with companies that are ambitious about growth. The advisers provide one-to-one general and specialist business advice, including in-depth advice on developing action and growth plans.

The advisers currently provide tailored advice and support through a wide number of programmes within the LLEP area, ensuring access to services that encourage growth, innovation and finance. There is also a wide range of workshops and events covering areas such as accessing new markets, investment marketing, accessing finance and exporting.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barriers are access to UK markets, access to talent and leadership programmes. They are also looking for support through local leadership programmes, as well as peer to peer networks and local universities and business schools.
