LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

New Anglia LEP has now identified high growth companies in the region using data from Experian, Beauhurst and Fame/Mint. The LEP is putting together a menu of business support that can be offered to high growth businesses to turn ‘silver’ companies into ‘gold’ companies. Each company identified from its data mining will have a dedicated high growth adviser allocated to them to help explore the company’s exact internal requirements and the external support that can be provided by the ecosystem. For the past two years New Anglia Growth Hub has been recommending suitable companies to apply for the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK programme. This has been very successful and ten companies are now alumni of the programme.

SCALEUP VIEWS:

The key barriers to growth are access to talent, to UK markets and to infrastructure. Their two key support mechanisms are public sector funding for R&D and Growth Hubs, followed by interaction with peer to peer networks and LEPs.
