An event helping businesses move to the next stage of growth
The independent Scale-Up Report on UK Economic Growth 2014 identified five key barriers that businesses must conquer if they are going to achieve their growth ambitions. Together with ICAEW and Scale Up Institute, Enterprise Nation will deliver this one day event that will help you as a business overcome these barriers:
- Finding employees to hire who have the skills your business needs
- Building your leadership capability
- Accessing customers in other markets/home market
- Accessing the right combination of finance
- Navigating infrastructure
ScaleUp 2016 will hear from entrepreneurs like Tim Robinson, the man who drove the exponential growth of delivery solution Doddle; Jim Cregan, the charismatic force behind Jimmy’s Iced Coffee; Simply Business managing director, Jason Stockwood who runs The Sunday Times Best Company to Work For and founder of Purplebricks.com, Michael Bruce, who will tell the story of starting and growing one of the UK’s most successful online estate agencies.
Seedrs’s own Campaign Associate, Chris Rea, will appear on the midday panel” Show me the money!” with a panel of funders including Barclays Bank and national accounting firm, Macintyre Hudson, to explore your options and have your funding questions answered.
