Scale-Up Support

The Scale-Up Initiative is currently closed, however there are a number of other growth support programmes currently available. If you’d like to speak with a member of the team about other opportunities please get in touch with the Growth Hub.

The SCR Scale-Up initiative, is aimed at accelerating the growth of high-potential businesses through peer focused business learning, group working and industry insight. It is focussed on supporting established businesses to grow where they are ambitious to achieve high levels of growth and is an initiative delivered in collaboration with the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University and the SCR Growth Hub. It consists of a programme of activity including learning modules spread over a three month period to allow busy leaders to participate, interspersed with 1-2-1 sessions directly between each individual business and their dedicated Business Growth Specialist.

The initiative is supported by the Scale Up Institute, who are working to support scale up businesses across the UK. As well as high-quality learning delivered by local university partners, the programme offers networking, peer learning opportunities and will include a range of industry speakers from high growth businesses.

Businesses will be selected through a competitive process and will have the opportunity to take part in this peer based learning – growth initiative. The programme is free of charge to businesses and is funded by the SCR Growth Hub.
