Build on the success of your business idea (your spark) and take it to the next stage of development (scale-up); as 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.

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
