LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Priority sectors for Marches LEP cover advanced manufacturing and engineering, agri food packaging and agri tech, defence and cyber security and their emerging environmental technology sector. Each distinct sector will have its own, streamlined package of engagement.

Business and economic advisers offer a business mentoring service and signpost scaleups to further specialist advice. A new adviser with a specialist scaleup role will offer further provision.

Sector-led networking is a key element of the Marches approach. A scaleup pilot group aimed at the Food and Drink Manufacturing sector is collaboratively delivered by Telford & Wrekin Hub along with Enterprise Telford, University of Wolverhampton and Harper Adams University. It provides a vital forum to share best practice, learn about new sectorspecific innovations and technology and collaborate in research and product development projects.

Findings from this pilot will be evaluated ahead of the programme being rolled out to each of the other key sectors.

A new #GetGrowing campaign will bring together a suite of services for scaleups. The campaign’s success is evidenced by case studies and video bites highlighting help available through the growth hubs, and showcases examples of companies expanding into new markets and exports.
