Local LEP ScaleUp Programmes

ScaleUp Berkshire works with scaleups across all sectors to connect them with specialist support at a local, regional and national level. Action includes signposting business to specialist support from peer-to-peer networking, and mentoring to accessing new markets, creating growth and access to finance. Programmes are delivered in partnership with bodies including Innovate UK, Tech Nation, DIT, Be the Business, Vistage and ELITE.
A range of tools and resources supports scaleups to develop and drive business strategy, establish links with funding partners and with academia giving them access to new talent and skill. This is underpinned by one-to-one peer to facilitate the sharing of experiences and new ideas and to build mutually beneficial, long-term relationships.
