Growing support for scaleups

Ambitious scaleup businesses in Lancashire are being invited to apply for a new programme designed to help them accelerate their growth.

The Scaleup Leaders Network, led by Two Zero, Lancashire County Council’s support service for the county’s scaleup businesses, aims to help business owners and managers to accelerate their expansion through sustained growth coaching and peer group learning with other high-growth business leaders.

The fully funded programme will be delivered by business growth consultancy Cube Thinking and is open to scaleups which can demonstrate strong potential to accelerate their growth.

Business leaders will access to up to 12 months of support and have been encouraged to apply as soon as possible to benefit fully from the programme.

The network aims to develop the leadership mindset and scaleup strategies of those on the programme through one-to-one coaching, group masterclasses on key topics and by providing facilitated peer learning to help them build long-lasting networks of likeminded business leaders.

The programme will help participants develop robust strategies for accessing finance and environment, social and governance (ESG).

They will also learn to develop and refine their overall scaleup business strategy and will receive a full business health check, with support to improve business performance throughout the programme.

Scaleup Leaders Network builds on the success of Two Zero’s Scaleup Resurgence programme, a six-month programme which helped around 20 scaleup businesses return from the pandemic to full strength quickly during the pandemic.

Lancashire businesses wishing to join the network must meet a selection criterion and demonstrate scaleup activity already taking place within their businesses.
