Local LEP ScaleUp Programmes

The Growth Hub Account Management approach identifies businesses with the ambition, capability, capacity and opportunity to be high growth, and works with them to overcome barriers inhibiting their growth potential. This relationship continues from the phase of initial growth through points where a natural growth spurt takes place or is needed, and aims to provide more consistent growth over time rather than a scaleup episode followed by contraction.
The FinditinCW Portal enables local scaleups to develop their capabilities and realise businesses opportunities, including major projects such as HS2, LEP infrastructure and the Commonwealth Games, as well as B2B collaborative opportunities. Meet The Buyer events on the portal highlight the structures and qualifications they need to compete for such opportunities. In the last year opportunities worth over £20 billion have been available to Coventry & Warwickshire scaleup businesses. In addition, the LEP has a well-developed system of peer-to-peer networks including a network of experienced business mentors and leadership programmes.
