LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Solent has seen a marked increase in the number of high-growth companies. The challenge now is to match this with equally strong growth in jobs and productivity.

A new Productivity and Growth Strategy is designed to help close this gap, boosting productivity and accelerating job growth in high-value areas. New access to finance routes, delivered through the Solent Growth Fund, will help scaleups operating in innovative sectors, including the region’s strong maritime, aerospace, energy and green technology bases.

Additional services for scaling businesses comes through a new innovation programme. Launched in July 2017, it offers investment to high-growth companies looking to improve productivity through innovation in products, services and manufacturing processes or wanting to forge new supply chain partnerships. This comes on top of the LEP’s existing investment in pioneering regional projects including the Cancer Immunology Centre, Fareham Innovation Centre, the Solent Test Bed Facility and the Future Technology Centre.

Solent LEP is also making sure the wider services it offers high-growth companies is easily accessed. A new Enterprise Solent publication showcases achievement and themed sessions help scaleups with innovation, intellectual property and exports.

Venturefest South, launched in March, brings together innovators, entrepreneurs and investors to showcase innovation, pitch for finance and shape business growth. Solent LEP is a founding partner of the programme which saw an attendance of over 500 at its first event. Wider advice comes through Solent’s three senior navigators along with a dedicated adviser for scaleups.
