Local LEP ScaleUp Programmes

The Humber Growth Hub offers a full diagnostic service helping to identify businesses that can grow at a significant rate with advisers referring clients to a range of solutions. It also operates a suite of three discrete support schemes under the umbrella of the #GrowMySME Programme: The Business Growth Scheme for comprehensive wrap-around support to aid growth-driven businesses, the ICT for Growth Scheme delivering specialist support to aid the introduction of digital technology, and the Finance for Growth Scheme to help growing businesses diagnose, understand and access suitable growth finance.

A new Scale-Up Business Development Programme was launched in October to provide a variety of support including one-to-one coaching, specialist masterclasses, facilitated peer learning and digital content drops.

The Supply Chain Network is a newly set-up service offering supply chain support to SMEs in the Humber region. Businesses of any sector can receive support to understand more about their opportunities to enter supply chains, diagnose their barriers to winning more work, and raising awareness of both public and private procurement opportunities.

The Humber has a capital grants scheme aimed at supporting companies with their physical growth plans. It is part of a suite of financial products which include an infrastructure loan scheme and the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.
