Local LEP ScaleUp Programmes

Gloucestershire organises a monthly workshop programme for scaleups which offer peer-to-peer learning as well as the sharing of insights from high calibre speakers. Many businesses attend every month, building a network of like-minded business leaders and a community of growing firms. The dedicated Scale Up Live-Event programme began again in September with a range of speakers and topics specifically targetting operational aspects of recovery and new strategies for growth based on customer-centricity, agile working and a culture of applied innovation and creative thinking.
