Our vision is to inspire and empower ambitious businesses and entrepreneurs across the Sheffield City Region (SCR) to grow.

The ScaleUp 360 accelerator programme brings together a consortium of expert business partners who will provide tailored support to businesses and entrepreneurs, from early stage to investment ready, to take their business to the next level. The consortium comprises East Midlands Chamber of Commerce; Doncaster Chamber of Commerce; Barnsley Business Village @BarnsleyBIC; and is led by Sheffield Hallam University.

Each client has dedicated account manager whose role it will be to ensure you have access to the scale-up expertise, knowledge and connections you need to grow a sustainable and investment ready business. This will include 1-2-1 specialist business advice, mentor support, workshops and access to investment opportunities.

In addition, the recently opened Hallam i-Lab offers clients access to a dedicated entrepreneur and business incubation space at the heart of Sheffield City Centre.


ScaleUp 360 supports businesses with high growth potential located in the SCR covering Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Bolsover, Chesterfield, Derbyshire Dales, Doncaster, North East Derbyshire, Rotherham and Sheffield.
