Smith & Williamson is proud to be a corporate founder of the ScaleUp Institute, helping to influence and improve the ecosystem for entrepreneurial businesses and facilitating their development and growth.
The ScaleUp Institute is a private sector, not-for-profit organisation which aims to deliver tangible benefits and remove barriers to corporate growth. It is committed to taking the UK’s international reputation for start-up businesses to the next level, by closing the scale-up gaps and developing a world-leading nation of high growth enterprises for the benefit of current and future generations. Closing the ‘scaleup gap’ has the potential to deliver:
Published in November 2014, the ScaleUp Report contains pioneering research and recommendations, providing the foundations upon which The ScaleUp Institute has developed. The Institute collaborates with policy makers, corporate partners and educational establishments to take these recommendations forward, to track the targets set out in the report, and to make a real and identifiable impact.
The inaugural Scaleup Index, compiled with Beauhurst and Smith & Williamson, examines 3,856 visible scaleups in the UK. The Index focuses on key attributes of our scaling community, showing the diversity of the nation’s scaleups, their breadth of sectors and presence up and down the country.
The 2017 ScaleUp Review draws on the thematic work of the ScaleUp Institute and the results of its latest survey of scaleup leaders to present a complete picture of the national landscape. The ScaleUp Institute has collaborated with the Office of National Statistics, enabling the use of more comprehensive datasets, allowing the Review to examine in far more detail the relative scaleup performance of different geographic areas, as well as change over a three-year period.
Published in December 2016, the ScaleUp Review updates and builds upon the 2014 ScaleUp Report. It includes on new datasets, additional research and recently published surveys of scaleup leaders to make new recommendations on what needs to be done next to close the scaleup gap.
The ScaleUp Institute creates opportunities for scale-up companies across industry sectors and regions to meet and share ideas. Aspiring scale-ups benefit from research, thought leadership and resources. There are 11,575 Scaleup businesses in the UK. Find the latest information on their regional distribution.
