Event Details

  • In partnership with the RSA, we are hosting the first of 2017s Engine Shed briefings on the convergence of the Scale Up and Inclusive Growth agendas.

  • RSA logo
  • This event will explore how we deliver on the national Scale-Up agenda, in a way that really works for the city-region - i.e. that growth benefits from being inclusive, while at the same time contributes to strengthening the social fabric and resilience.
  • We will talk about creating an environment where enterprises (for-profit and not-for-profit) can thrive and 'scale up', what that involves and how we make sure the opportunities that arise from the resultant growth, reduce rather than increase the inequality gap.

  • This event also sets the scene for a series of briefings that contribute to helping businesses scale up.

  • Two reports are relevant to this event: the ScaleUp Review 2016 and the RSA Inclusive Growth Commission's emerging findings.

  • A panel session with Q&A, followed by networking.

Introducing our Panel:

  • Marvin Rees - Mayor of Bristol
  • Irene Graham - CEO, The Scale Up Institute
  • Charlotte Alldritt - Director, RSA Inclusive Growth Commission
  • Helen Simpson - Professor of Economics, University of Bristol
  • OVO Energy - Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2016 - The Smith & Williamson Scale Up Business of the Year 

The aim of this event is to be informative, provocative, raise awareness, generate new ideas and thoughts, and help build an inclusive scale-up ecosystem - we hope you can attend and contribute to that thinking.

The event is kindly sponsored by:
