Great British Scaleups is the next evolution of our hugely successful Little British Battler (LBB) programme, which brought over 100 UK tech SMEs to the attention of the wider market.

As a result of particpating, many LBBs were able to develop their businesses further, spurred on by the increased market visibility and kudos that participation in the LBB programme brought them.
