LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES
Oxfordshire’s team of Network Navigator advisers are already well established within the region’s business community and actively engage with companies that are ambitious about growth.
They also have strong links to other local, privately funded networks of mentors and accelerators and refer companies on to this.
Oxfordshire LEP help design tailored programmes for each scaleup, including ensuring access to services that encourage innovation, finance, mentoring, and a range of workshops and masterclasses.
In addition, three new programmes are planned in 2018 which will equip Oxfordshire’s scaleups with a comprehensive programme designed to ensure scaleups overcome key barriers to growth. Combined, they tackle access to finance, innovation and exports.
The Innovation Support for Business programme is designed to help companies commercialise innovations, promote business investment in innovation and building and strengthening links between businesses and researchers.
A new Access to Finance programme will help with raising finance or growth, business planning and sales for worth.
The programmes, delivered by First Ascent Group who also give delegates with lifetime mentoring, will help scaleups overcome the barriers to growth in the local area.
