Eligibility & Availability
We welcome applications from businesses across the D2N2 region who are ambitious to grow, but do not fit the growth criteria of our wider UpScaler project support offer. We are looking for businesses that can demonstrate their company has a novel element to their services or products or are currently undergoing a period of innovation, which will enable them to significantly increase their customer base or expand into new markets.  Businesses must have been trading for a minimum of 1 year and be actively trading. Spaces are limited and available maximum of 40 businesses. Please book your place using the form below, a member of the team will then be in touch to guide you through the application process.
Participation in the programme will give you access to the regions premier business network, access to free strategic, leadership and management workshops, access to exclusive learning materials and an opportunity to learn from our UpScaler business champions.


Workshop
Scaling a business requires more than developing a great product or service, this programme will help you challenge your current thinking, move beyond your business plan and identify your barriers to growth. During this workshop, you will explore:

  • The different stages of business growth and where are you on your journey.
  • What it takes to become a business leader as opposed to a business owner
  • Identify gaps in your knowledge, experience and resources
  • Identify barriers to growth and action you can implement to overcome them
  • Getting started on developing a 1 – 3 year strategic growth plan

Project Background

UpScaler is a delivery partnership between Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University (NBS) and East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire , Leicestershire)The delivery partnership combines academic excellence in leading-edge business thinking and dynamic business communication and networking, to build an established presence across the D2N2 region.

Through our wider programme, the D2N2 Growth Hub UpScaler Project currently supports over 160 scale up SMEs in across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Our participants employ over 3500 people and have a combined annual turnover of over £450 million. A scale up is typically classified as a business that is growing by 20% year on year in either turnover or headcount – if this is a level of growth you have ambition to achieve than we would strongly encourage you to apply for the Breakthrough programme.
