Local LEP ScaleUp Programmes
The Future Focus programme – delivered by Unlocking Potential in partnership with the University of Exeter – supports scaleups to deliver actions plans. Tailored support is given through peer-to-peer workshops and innovation coaching. This is complemented by access to academic research and expertise as well as funding. Its Knowledge Exchange component allows participating businesses to test the market for their new innovations. The CIOS Investment Fund, a collaboration with the Business Bank, allows scaleups access to a £40 million equity fund. Scaleups can apply for funding from £25,000 to £2m to support further growth.
