The shortage of growth capital available in the UK is well-documented. Many laudable initiatives have been put in place to address this and should be given time to take effect. However, government and industry must ensure that progress in closing the finance gap is maintained and reviewed, and the extent to which scaleups are being supported must be reported.

The purpose of the Finance and Growth Capital committee is to provide assessment and direction on the key needs and policy issues affecting finance and risk capital for scaling businesses. These include research, analysis and thought leadership as relates to finance and risk capital, as well as conducting reviews of finance programmes that support scaling businesses in order to develop appropriate case studies and learnings. Where relevant, specific sector support and analysis will also be undertaken.
The Committee reviews on an annual basis the existing programmes as identified in the 2014 Scale-Up Report, and assesses new programmes to put forward to the Evidence Committee. It reviews policies on finance and risk capital in the UK and internationally.
The ScaleUp Institute is proud to engage with our partners in their production of the following reports.
