The Innovate UK Scaleup Programme helps the highest potential businesses realise their ambitions.

It provides one-to-one, bespoke and funded support centred around innovative scaleups’ specific needs.

Participants are assigned a Scaleup Director who works with them as their designated single point of contact, to identify key scale up challenges and enablers that the collective resources, skills and connectivity of the board can address. A high level Strategic Advisory Board in turn provides another layer of connectivity and access to resources.

It is available to those companies achieving, or with the potential for, 50% compound annual growth rates (CAGR) and over.

It features a board of high calibre ‘Scale Up Directors’ who provide a matrix of skills and connectivity across domains such as finance, M&A, international markets, IP, supply chains, scale up leadership and talent management.

In addition, participants can learn and share experiences by joining one of the four Scaleup Peer Networks organised exclusively by the ScaleUp Institute.

The Scaleup Programme has been fundamental in getting our heads around what we need to grow our business.
