Scaling companies can benefit from, and are hungry for, appropriate programmes designed to break down the barriers that they face. But in a sea of business support offerings, many scaleups find it difficult to identify programmes that are specific to their needs. For a time-poor, fast-growing scaleup, it is often very difficult to determine what programmes really work.
In response to this challenge Innovate UK and the ScaleUp Institute have been working collaboratively with colleagues at Arup and the London School of Economics to map all the support that purports to be available to high-growth businesses. The initial findings from this research are presented here in this snapshot of the evolving landscape.
The ScaleUp Institute will continue to review the impact of programmes and initiatives and endorse those which can demonstrate that their support provides measurable benefits to scaleups – for more details on programmes we have endorsed so far click here.
