Business Scale Up Programme
High growth businesses play a vital role in creating jobs in the local community and driving economic growth in the UK. The desire of the scale up initiative is to make Britain the most fertile ground for businesses, not only to start up but also to scale up and grow.
Challenges in growing your business
When an established business grows year on year it faces many different challenges, in particular the capacity and capability for growth. Businesses don't grow in straight lines, they grow in steps and on each step there is a very different business.
In growing your business, you may have experienced some of the following:-
- The business constantly demands more of your time
- You find yourself working IN the business rather than ON it
- It's increasingly difficult to find and keep the right people
- Not being able to let go
- Working ridiculous hours
- The need for better processes to reduce duplication and save time
- Funding needs
- Need for more space
- Less thinking time
- Family handover
- The need for more innovative marketing solutions
- Not knowing which way to turn or who to talk to

Our scale up programmes run for a minimum of 12 months and we are always looking for ways to obtain subsidised funding which is available is many different parts of the country
Our business has blossomed as a result of taking part in the Scale Up programme. Having an external source to come in and look objectively at the way we run our company and offer recommendations on how to grow was the best thing we took away. Our internal policies have been strengthened as a result and whilst it took some time for all staff to get on board with the scheme, we are now all pulling in the same direction and are better placed to push the company to further success. None of this would have been possible without the guidance, advice and input form the Scale Up team.

The key thing I've taken on board is how invaluable it is to take time away from the day to day running of the business and focus attention on the company's strategy and direction. Working with our New Level Results coach has enabled me to work more ON the business as opposed to just IN the business. This has enabled me to ask different questions and then map and track the solutions. Any business looking to scale up should consider bringing in a professional coach.
