Scale-ups have the potential to contribute up to £225bn to UK GDP and create 150,000 new jobs by 2034.

Ever since the release of last year’s Scale-Up Report, a greater emphasis has been put on the potential scale-up companies have.. The report, which based its findings on an analysis of 50 scale-up programmes piloted in 20 different countries, found that with the right support, scale-ups could contribute up to £225bn to the UK economy by 2034, creating 150,000 new jobs in the process.

The report also highlighted a number of factors that are also holding Britain’s start-ups back, making it increasingly difficult for them to achieve success in scaling-up. According to the report, businesses are facing five main issues when it comes to scaling-up. In the coming weeks we will be addressing each of these issues, speaking to businesses that have achieved scale-up success to find out how they overcame these hurdles.
