34 businesses from across Greater Manchester have celebrated their graduation from Business Growth Hub’s scale-up programme, Spark2Scale.
The participants were rewarded for their months of hard work with a sparkling celebration ceremony at MediaCity’s Ziferblat, receiving trophies and yearbooks to mark their achievements.
Spark2Scale launched in March 2017, and has already taken two cohorts of B2B businesses through a programme of support that helps to:
- Develop excellent leadership capabilities
- Expand skills and knowledge in business
- Increase client bases nationally and internationally
- Access the right finance
- Build infrastructure
Hilary Centeleghe, senior growth manager at the Hub, said: “Spark2Scale has had a fantastic reception. Some of our graduates are already reporting increases in sales and are creating jobs, showing how quickly the Hub’s support translates into making a real difference to the growth of these businesses."
Due to high demand, the third cohort of the programme has been filled, however, registrations for cohort four are now open. Any B2B scale-ups that have the capacity and ambition to grow, but feel they could benefit from intense support, experience and confidence to rapidly scale-up their business should register below.
