Local LEP ScaleUp Programmes

Businesses benefit from a number of scaleup programmes already exist in the region, such as the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK, the PwC Scale-up programme and Growth 365 run by Grant Thornton. The LEP itself has two tailored programmes:

  • The Strategic Business Growth Programme provides one-to-one advice, financial support towards capital investment that will accelerate growth, and specialist workshops. It has exceeded contractual targets in terms of the number of businesses supported.
  • The AD:VENTURE programme has been extended until 2022. It offers a comprehensive and innovative mix of tailored business support to boost growth and develop businesses in their early years.
