Who's the Spark2Scale programme for?

Spark to Scale is open to B2B/B2C businesses in Greater Manchester that have been trading for less than 3 years.

To make the leap from start-up to scale-up can be difficult. You need consistent and strongly defined ways of working. The Spark 2 Scale programme hones your entrepreneurial skills so that you can take your business to the next level.

  • The motivation and drive to power your growth
  • Master business fundamentals and your finances
  • New relationships with other businesses looking to grow quickly
  • Potential collaboration opportunities
  • Peer support, learning from other particpants

*Certain eligibility criteria apply. Priority will be given to companies who can demonstrate the clearest potential for growth.

Why take part in our Spark2Scale programme?

Do you look at an obstacle, but see opportunity instead? Our Spark2Scale programme is perfect for aspiring, ambitious early-stage scale-up businesses across Greater Manchester who are ready to grow at pace.

The impact of creating more scale-up businesses could be huge. To put things into perspective, the Scaleup Institute reports that an increase of just one percent in the country-wide scale-up population could drive an additional 238,000 jobs and add £38bn to the economy within three years!

75% of the UK economy is comprised of SME businesses. You make a huge contribution.

We've got two cohorts coming up early next year. These workshops will be delivered in person and held at premium locations in central Manchester.

Our next cohort begins on 27th April 2023, with the additional session held on 11th May and 18th May.
