About This Event

If your company is growing at a pace that is hard to manage, the D2N2 Growth Hub’s UpScaler project could be the ideal solution. Delivered in partnership with Nottingham Business School and East Midlands Chamber this exclusive and unique programme provides specific, tailored and intense high-growth business support.

As an invitation-only scheme, UpScaler is open to a limited number of high-growth enterprises that are growing rapidly or planning to do so. Businesses that are scaling up; have the potential to scale-up; or are ambitious to grow will be considered for the programme.

Benefits of joining D2N2 Growth Hub’s UpScaler include access to a customised range of proven business support workshops, peer-to-peer events and a management development programme, enhanced by a grant scheme to subsidise the cost of additional support.
