LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

The Scottish Government’s Programme for growth and recent Enterprise and Skills Review is a call to both public and private sectors to stimulate more businesses to realise their growth ambitions and scale up. The Government recognises this as a way to create significant economic growth, jobs and wealth across Scotland.

Scaleups are extremely important to Scotland’s economy as they have disproportionate economic impact. Entrepreneurial Scotland is using its convening power to facilitate the Scotland CAN DO Scale movement to bring about cultural change. In addition, Scottish Enterprise (SE) has delivered a differentiated approach to account management since 2014 and specifically delivers support to scaleups as part of that service.

Businesses receive support to access talent, infrastructure and investment as well as opportunities to develop their leadership capacity and develop new international markets. SE provide this directly and through collaboration with private partners.

These are delivered in a way that encourages per to peer support with the sharing of challenges, experiences and learning.
