The ScaleUp Institute is a private sector-led, not-for-profit organisation focused on collaborating with policy makers, corporates, finance players, educators and government at a local and national level.
Our mission is to help the UK to become the best place in the world to grow a business as well as start one, and enable our existing high-growth businesses to scale up even further.
Scaleup businesses are defined as companies which have increased their turnover and/or employee numbers annually by more than 20 per cent over a three-year period. Nationally, the latest 2018 data from ONS showed that there are 33,860 of these businesses generating more than £1 trillion to the UK economy. The national number of scaleup companies has increased by more than one-third over the last five years. In parallel, we have a generation of scaling businesses who are growing at greater than five percent whose scaleup potential must be encouraged and fostered.
