Scale Up New Anglia’s High Growth Finance Conference a Success
Scale Up New Anglia continues its mission to help businesses scale up successfully with the latest of their High Growth events, this time taking place at the beautiful Dunston Hall, Norwich, on Tuesday 7 May.
A diverse panel of high growth and scale up experts discussed the wide selection of funding options available, including Barclays High Growth Programme, Angel Funding, tax breaks, grants, Venture Capital and the Investment Readiness Programme from Invest East. Talking through their own growth success stories were Lyndsey Whiteman, CFO of Mirus Aircraft Seating and James Cook of PCE Automation, drawing in a full-house of keen attendees.
Event speaker Justin Nevison-Grainger, Director at Conatus Financing Solutions Ltd and Chief Financial Officer at IJYI, said: “It’s been a privilege to be a speaker and contributor at the superb Scale Up New Anglia high growth programme. The entrepreneurs involved are often the unsung heroes of business; the economies and employees of Suffolk, Norfolk and beyond. If I can help in some small way; all the better. Also, everyone involved picks up learning and inspiration and for that, I am grateful too.”
The Scale Up programme was launched to support businesses across Norfolk and Suffolk who have high growth potential. The aim of the programme is to assist businesses in the ‘sweet spot’ between start-ups and scale ups.
As part of the programme, the events aim to pull together sector experts, providing guidance, peer experiences, tools and techniques to help businesses develop their businesses growth strategies.
Dr Morgan Potter, High Growth Manager at New Anglia Growth Hub, said of the events: “We’ve tried to make it highly informative and interactive across all of our events. We’ve involved local companies who have successfully managed the journey towards high growth and this was particularly well-received by the audiences.”
The Scale Up New Anglia programme is managed by the New Anglia Growth Hub and plans to announce further events soon in its bid to support growing businesses across the two counties.
