Is there room for scale-ups to grow?

Published on December 1, 2017

On Wednesday 29th November, a diverse crowd of people from across the public and private sectors in the West of England came together for a Scale-up Briefing event hosted by Engine Shed. The event focused on working out how to overcome the challenges of office space availability, affordability and suitability in the region.

If you are a scale-up or start-up business founder, please complete this super quick survey to help me establish the demand for office space in the next 12-24 months in the region. Your data is for my eyes only!

This blog series tells the story of the Scale-up Enabler, Briony Phillips. Briony joined the Engine Shed team on a 1 year contract in June 2017 funded by Business West, Engine Shed, The University of Bristol and the West of England Growth Hub. This group have a shared ambition – first, to identify scale-up businesses in the West of England region and to better understand their challenges and second, to design, facilitate and support initiatives that will make it easier for businesses to scale-up more effectively – in the long term.
