What Support can we offer?

Scaleup North East was established to support companies growing or with the potential to grow, at speed.  In these challenging economic times, we have broadened our reach and offer to help companies to navigate the challenging economic circumstances.

The support that we can offer you is very much led by the needs of your business. This is the only programme of its kind and matches you with a Scale-Up Partner who has vast experience of scaling their own company at a senior level – your own dragon. Their role is to uncover the most challenging issues you face and provide bespoke support to help you overcome them. You define your own objectives in partnership with the Scaleup Partner and they will help you take the actions required to grow your business. The programme is fully funded so doesn’t cost you a thing.

 The programme offers one to one support at a time most suitable for you and this is also underpinned by peer to peer support, on line events (and normally face to face), motivational and inspiring speakers. We’ve had a big impact so far with over 600 companies in the region helping them to increase turnover and profits, create new jobs, diversify, enter into new markets and gain investment. Have a look at some of our case studies.

We’re looking for the last few companies to participate before the programme closes in December, so whether its recovering from problems associated with Covid 19 or keeping up with fast growth, we can help.
