Much work to do to create more Great British Scaleups!

picKudos to all those involved in the publication of the Scaleup Institute’s Annual Scaleup Review 2017, launched earlier this week at an event keynoted by Margot James MP, Minister for Small Business and Scale-Up Champion.

The 216-page tome provides a comprehensive ‘state of the nation’ assessment of the UK scaleup scene. Noting that the number of UK scaleups (businesses with average annual growth in employees or turnover greater than 20% p.a. over a three-year period, and with more than 10 employees at the beginning of the period) has increased from just under 27,000 in 2013 to over 31,000 in 2015, there’s clearly still more work to be done.

logoTechMarketView is doing its bit through our Great British Scaleup programme, which aims to help UK tech SMEs assess their scaleup potential and what they have to do to achieve it.

We have just completed the second Great British Scaleup event, with a further eight companies going through the process (see Introducing the Great British Scaleups – Series 2). You can read short profiles on these companies on UKHotViews.

We’re planning to ramp up the Great British Scaleup programme to run four events in 2018, with the next pencilled in for March. Keep an eye on UKHotViews for dates and how to apply, or drop us a line at if you think your company has the potential to scale up and would like to register your interest.

The TechMarketView Great British Scaleup programme is proudly sponsored by ScaleUp Group and Cogeco Peer1.
