LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES
Liverpool City Region LEP is providing strong leadership to foster scaleups across the region. It is working with 60 local businesses to accelerate growth through the provision of dedicated ‘Scale up Managers’ and mentoring from local Business Leaders serving as Strategic Mentors. The intention is to create the first fully integrated high growth programme for the City Region.
A key part of the programme will involve City Region business leaders as Strategic Mentors working alongside Functional Mentors (advising on sales, systems and finance) and Scaleup Managers. Their role will be to help businesses diagnose issues and plan for accelerated growth particularly focused on key growth sectors.
The programme is designed to have four strands of activity with a joint goal of realising the growth potential and ambition of businesses. Each strand has a specific remit and will be delivered through a combination of procurement and the LEP directly. The elements are:
- Scale Up Leadership Programme
- Scale Up Export Programme
- Scale Up Innovation Programme
- Scale Up Voucher Scheme
The Voucher Scheme will provide scaleup businesses with funding to unlock the potential in the planned programmes.
The Programme is designed to work with 250 businesses and create 450 jobs. It will operate in two segments with all 250 firms receiving diagnostic analysis; 100 companies will be selected for more intense programme engagement and the voucher scheme will be available to 50 businesses.
The LEP will continue to focus on the priority sectors of the current Strategic Economic Plan, inclusive growth and increasing productivity.
