East Midlands Accelerator Supporting Growth

Start Up to Scale Up Accelerator

One of the five strands of the East Midlands Accelerator project is the Start Up to Scale Up Accelerator.

The Start Up to Scale Up Accelerator will help start-up and scaling businesses to:

  • improve their products and services, and approach to innovation;
  • develop their leaders and workforce, and maintain their wellbeing and productivity; and
  • grow their business by improving their digital, analytical and problem-solving skills.

Only businesses based in areas selected by Government for UK Community Renewal Fund* support are eligible to apply. In the East Midlands, these are: Derbyshire Dales; High Peak; Mansfield; Bassetlaw; Newark & Sherwood; Nottingham City; and Leicester City.

Start Up to Scale Up activity is being delivered by a number of partners across the East Midlands, including East Midlands Chamber, the University of Derby, Marketing Peak District and Derbyshire, De Montfort University, the University of Leicester and Loughborough University, The Food and Drink Forum and Trading Standards Nottinghamshire.
