What is the Scale Up New Anglia Programme and Who is it For?
The Scale Up New Anglia programme has been launched to support businesses with high growth potential up to 20% in terms of turnover. These companies have been categorised as ‘Silver’. Those achieving growth in excess of 20% in terms of turnover or FTEs are categorised as ‘Gold’.
The mission of the Scale Up New Anglia programme is, therefore, providing the business support to turn ‘Silver’ businesses into ‘Gold’ businesses.
The objective of the programme is to engage with potential high growth businesses throughout the counties of Suffolk and Norfolk and to create an exclusive community of like-minded peers and industry and topic experts. This programme will provide ongoing support and also understand and develop the nature of the high growth ecosystem required to generate growth across the New Anglia region.
