The Scaleup NE programme provides 1:1 support to early stage and scaling businesses to uncover the most challenging issues it faces based on the five key barriers identified by the ScaleUp Institute and then provide bespoke support to help overcome them.  Alongside the 1:1 support offered through the programme, scaling businesses can access other forms of peer to peer support from associate partners and approved provision. The programme is also underpinned by a grant programme, offering 40% (capital or revenue) grants to help them overcome a specific barrier to scaling, such as paying for legal, HR or IP advice or external leadership coaching as well as the purchase of capital equipment or refurbishment of premises as they outgrow existing space.
