Young businesses looking to grow are invited to declare their Expression of Interest in joining the next cohort of the Business Growth Hub’s Spark2Scale programme.
Spark2Scale is a dynamic cohort-led support programme, created by the Business Growth Hub, which aims to Supporting businesses to grow. It is designed to tackle the barriers faced by scale-ups that are keen to grow but lack the experience or confidence to take their business forward.
The Business Growth Hub’s successfully proven programme kicks-off with a comprehensive workshop developing the right strategy to help you identify what’s holding your business back from greater heights.
This is followed with bespoke one-to-one support which will ensure you personally achieve a comprehensive strategic plan.
Finally, industry specialists in finance, sales, digital marketing and growth hacking will lead a series of five inspirational peer-to-peer workshops.
The Business Growth Hub is keen to help businesses find the fresh energy keep them moving forward.
“Do you look at an obstacle, but see opportunity instead? Our Spark2Scale programme is perfect for aspiring scale-up businesses across Greater Manchester who are ready to grow at pace.
“The impact of creating more scale-up businesses could be huge. To put things into perspective, the ScaleUp Institute reports that an increase of just one percent in the country-wide scale-up population could drive an additional 238,000 jobs and add £38bn to the economy within three years!”
The Spark2Scale programme is open to B2B businesses* that have been trading for less than three years, and have already demonstrated 20 percent year-on-year growth or able to demonstrate realistic projections to do so.

- Find the right talent and skills
- Develop leadership capabilities
