Following a £5m award from HEFCE, SETsquared is launching a new Scale-Up Programme that will support the most innovative scale-up companies across the South of England.

Designed for companies with 10 or more employees, the programme is focused on the following sectors:

  • Digital innovation
  • Advanced engineering & manufacturing
  • Health & wellbeing
  • Environmental, sustainable & maritime/marine

The programme will help scale-ups to secure funded R&D projects with the SETsquared universities, along with investment, access to customers and talent that will make these businesses a success.

Scale-ups require a different kind of support to start-ups and more often than not, it is hard to get the specialist knowledge needed at the right time and for the right cost in terms of time and money.

The Scale-Up Programme has been devised following a piece research conducted by SETsquared which looked at the challenges faced by scale-up companies and what kind of support was needed to help overcome these challenges. Read SETsquared’s Scale-Up Report
