Scaleup North East

For companies that have the potential to achieve significant growth by 2021

Scaleup North East works with businesses that can demonstrate both the hunger and potential to achieve high levels of growth. Whilst we can’t achieve growth for you, we will do everything in our power to help.

The support we give is led by the needs of your business, it’s not a blanket approach where one size fits all. Our commitment to you is to get behind your business, investing time, energy and resources to help you become the best that you can be.

Over the next few months, we will be approaching eligible companies over the North East to invite them to join them on the programme.

We will match you with one of our experienced Scaleup Partners. They will work with you to achieve defined objectives, ensuring you are taking the actions required to scale. They will be your go to person throughout the process, both someone you can trust and someone who will challenge you, keeping you on your toes and making sure that you follow through and keep focused on the end goal.

The only thing we require from you is to have the potential to be amazing - simple!

Your business must:

  • be based in the North East Local Enterprise Partnership area (Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham)
  • be a registered company and have been trading for more than three years
  • have a minimum of five and less than 250 employees (FTEs)
  • have an annual turnover of less than €50 million
  • operate in an eligible ERDF sector *

* We cannot support businesses operating in the banking, insurance and retail sectors
