New Anglia Growth Hub is delighted to announce the launch of the Scale Up programme. There are two launch events planned so far and more to come. The first two events are supporting Digital Tech and Manufacturing, with the event for Digital Tech held on the 6th February 2019 at Bedford Lodge Hotel.
The next launch event we have coming up is our Manufacturing Conference on the 26th March 2019 at Barnham Broom Hotel, Norwich, NR9 4DD.
This event is sector-specific to the manufacturing community, with other sector-specific events to follow (such as for Financing; more information to follow). But the overall focus is to provide information on support, guidance, peer experiences and possible tools and techniques to help you continue and develop your businesses growth and scale up your business successfully.
To join the event, fill in the form below and we will be in touch to confirm your place.
The Scale Up programme has been launched to support businesses with high growth potential. 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 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.
