Scale Up Week: Free online events offered to growing Norfolk and Suffolk businesses

In celebration of Scale Up Week, Scale Up New Anglia (SUNA) have created a series of online events giving you the unique opportunity to learn about the support, programmes and development opportunities available to you and your business across our region.

Hear from the people that not only deliver the programme but from those that have lived it as well. These events offer the unique chance to ask questions and truly gain an understanding of what the programme can offer you and your business and compare and discuss them in an open and honest forum with other like-minded businesses.

New Anglia Growth Hub’s High Growth Manager, Dr Morgan Potter, says: “There’s never been a better time for businesses to make the most of the support that is on offer to them.”

“This Scale Up Week we’ve put together a series of events that will showcase the wide range of support available. The programmes featured are a core part of Scale Up New Anglia’s Pathways – a programme of structured learning development and guidance to businesses with high growth potential.”

“There will be representatives from each of the Pathways plus advocates who have themselves benefited, so this is the ideal opportunity to find out more.”
