LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Partnership working with organisations that have strong relationships with scaleups has been the lynchpin of London’s approach. The data gathered is being used to identify and target potential growth businesses and shape the services offered.

A cornerstone of this is the Business Growth programme run by London & Partners, the capital’s official promotional agency which runs Go to Grow a leading international and export programme for our scaling businesses.

Scaleups involved in a London & Partners- run initiative can join the London VC Club which connects them with London’s financiers, crowdfunding platforms and angel network.

In addition to the Business Growth Programme, other services available to scaleups in the capital come from many private sector leading institutions such as:

  • LSEG ELITE
  • Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK, which operates across the county
  • The British Library’s Innovation for Growth Programme.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barrier to growth in London is access to talent, as well as access to markets both in the UK and internationally. Their key support needs are via peer to peer networks, public sector funding for R&D and obtaining visas.
