For the third year running, Sharing in Growth features as “an endorsed case study” in the annual Scaleup Review.
The report is from The Scaleup Institute which aims to advance understanding of how to scale up a business, and how to build the most effective environment in which scaleups can flourish. Through the Review and other communications, the Institute spreads best practice and provides opportunities for scaleup companies across industry sectors and regions to meet and share ideas. They also undertake research, thought leadership and targeted projects with partners and work with policy makers to identify opportunities that will support scaleup businesses.
In the 2018 Scaleup Review, there is an update of Sharing in Growth results and a reminder of how the programme works. It says: “SiG focuses on creating competitive capability by developing the people and the processes they use. As fast growing companies need access to knowledge, expertise and coaching to move through their stage of growth, each programme reflects detailed knowledge of the individual business context and is delivered on site. Tailored support lasts up to four years, is scaled to a company’s ambition and recognises that the needs of a smaller, evolving company are vastly different from a multi-site corporate.”
The report also features forewords by Kelly Tolhurst MP, Small Business Minister and Scale Up Champion for Government and by Scaleup Institute chair Sherry Coutu who explained: “As the UK faces an increasingly competitive and uncertain economic outlook, the need for communities to be able to drive their economic growth remains mission-critical. There has never been a more important time to focus on scaling businesses.”
