Join us at the launch event of the 'Spark2Scale' programme, which will be held at the Museum of Science and Industry on Tuesday, 14 March.
'Spark2Scale' is a comprehensive programme of support for aspiring scale-up businesses across Greater Manchester.
Take your business to the next level with our tailored scale-up support and peer to peer collaboration. Overcome barriers that can get in your way, including:
- Finding the right talent and skills
- Developing leadership capabilities
- Expanding your client base both in home and new markets
- Accessing the right finance
- Building your infrastructure
The Scaleup Institute has identified that an increase of just one percent in the country-wide scaleup population could drive an additional 238,000 jobs and add £38 billion to the economy within three years of their 20 percent per annum growth.
