LOCAL LEP SCALEUP PROGRAMMES

Engine Shed – a high tech business hub – has brought together Business West, the University of Bristol with West of England LEP to create and co-fund its scaleup Enabler programme. This aims to boost the broader businesses ecosystem by catalysing initiatives to foster growth.

It has adopted a three-stage strategy: Know, Invigorate, and Inspire. The Know phase involves identifying the scaleup community and understanding the challenges it faces. It will also involve mapping all scaleup-focused assets, from financial tools to events and networks.

Invigorate identifies gaps in existing provision. It also facilitates and encourages the creation of new initiatives for high-growth business. The final stage inspires new action and better engagement and leadership across the region. This includes briefing events, scaleup focused networking events and forums for intelligence sharing.

Other universities in the region also champion scaleups, with University of the West of England preparing to lead a dedicated ERDF funded scaleup programme. Many of the West of England’s existing services also actively work with scaleups.
