Join us for the third meeting of the North East Growth Hub Provider Network.
Chaired by Ammar Mirza, the event will focus on helping companies to scale. High growth businesses are of great importance to the economic growth of our region, and ensuring companies can scale up helps secure significant growth in jobs, taxes and wealth - sustaining our competitive advantage.
The event will include:
An introduction from Ammar, giving his thoughts on how businesses can embrace the scale-up agenda
Keynote presentations from Sherry Coutu and Irene Graham, Chair and CEO of the Scale Up Institute respectively
An overview of the North East approach to scale up from North East LEP Business Growth Director, Colin Bell
Panel discussion featuring North East businesses who have embraced the principles of scaling up
Through this provider network event, we will help you to develop an understanding of the Scale Up agenda, the role you can play in it and its potential contribution to growth in our region.
As part of our on-going commitment to supporting North East business support and finance providers, this networking event also gives you the opportunity to meet the providers that you may not yet know and in doing so, help to generate and share demand within the ‘business support ecosystem’. We are committed to using the event to help to strengthen relationships and create a positive culture for collaboration and partnership so that the provider network and Growth Hub go from strength to strength in terms of our offer to North East businesses.
