Supporting Growing Businesses

Helping businesses scale at speed

Businesses that are looking to scale up their services can benefit from the support and resources that OxLEP Business provides.

We help new and established businesses to expand their reach and grow their customer base, which can help to increase revenues, create more jobs, and add value to their products and services.

Scale-ups are the growth champions of SMEs. During a time when both investment and loans become less readily available due to economic climate, our ability to support scale-ups to prepare and access investment opportunities is of significant benefit.

Don’t let your potential go to waste.

Get support that helps you to grow your operations at scale, so you can have an even bigger impact where it matters most.

Whether you need a better understanding of how to pitch your business, lack the confidence as you’ve tried and failed before to scale-up, or feel limited by the time or resources you have available – we’ve seen it before and can offer you solutions.

We’ve helped businesses access financial and consultancy routes – such as grants, investment readiness training, and crowdfunding workshops – and guided them through that crucial growth stage.

What type of support does the scale-up advisor provide?

Our mentoring covers key business areas, including:

  • Boosting revenue streams by exploring market trends and diversification opportunities
  • Identify product/service niches and competitive advantage
  • Develop robust strategies and business plans that can withstand scrutiny
  • Become investment ready when the company has identified this as a key requirement for growth within its business plan
  • …and lots more!
