Local LEP ScaleUp Programmes

EM3’s core Growth Service model is to provide business support and advice to scaleups within identified priority sectors. This is delivered through a small full-time team with senior commercial backgrounds and over 15 sector experts who have experienced scaling.

It has continued to build on this “Growth Champions” model to provide guidance for scaleups in areas including access to finance, strategic planning, sales and marketing, as well as providing a stewardship role ensuring scaleups are referred to other relevant support and connections.

The LEP has recognised the importance of developing close partnerships with the local ecosystem, including local authorities, universities, private businesses and public sector organisations. These links have been particularly pertinent to delivering Covid support and recovery coaching. The Growth Hub director leads a quarterly EM3 business support forum including Chambers, FSB, Innovate UK, DIT, EEN and Tech Nation to share good practice and activities.
