The ScaleUp Institute's ambition is that the UK becomes the most fertile ground for businesses, not only to start up but to scale up and expand. If the UK is to capitalise on its long history as a trading nation and the vibrant entrepreneurial spirit which has seen an explosion in vitality over the past five years, it now needs to focus determinedly on how it ‘leans in’ to support its growing firms to scale. The programme finder tool available here, is a great way to scan what resources are active in the local area and as it stands, there are over 200 programmes to choose from. 

In addition to the programme finder, the ScaleUp Institute also produce yearly reviews which measures the impact and use of growth and expansion over the previous 12 months.
