We are working with scale-ups in the following sectors:

How you can engage

There are three different levels at which corporates can engage with the Scale-Up Programme.

  1. Supporter: Part of the network and digital marketplace, able to search for and contact companies who are of interest, and able to send out challenges / information about your innovation programmes directly to scale-ups.
  2. Sponsor: As above with the added ability to send specific marketing around your events and services (eg free cloud hosting, legal services etc) directly to the scale-ups plus an annual event / showcase focused on your innovation themes.
  3. Partner: At partner level, we will run a programme or cohort focused on your sector with up to 10 scale-ups, which culminates with the ‘winning’ scale-up working with you on a structured pilot and/ or investment programme.

The SETsquared Scale-up Programme enabled hofer powertrain to work with the University of Bristol for the first time, this added a new research dimension to a £40 million automotive project that will be at the heart of hofer’s UK growth plans.
