A letter to scale up founders

Published on July 16, 2018

Dear Scale up business founder,

Over the last 12 months, I have worked as Scale up Enabler investigating the challenges that stop you growing your business and working with colleagues across the public and private sector to unlock solutions. Now I need your help – to create the most comprehensive picture possible of what’s happening ‘under the bonnet’ of fast growth businesses in the West of England.

I am contacting you to urge you to please complete the ScaleUp Institute’s 2018 Scaleup Survey – the UK’s largest survey of its fast-growing companies. Please use this important opportunity to make your views and needs known.

The Scaleup Survey is now in its fifth year. Its influence and importance has grown rapidly, as it focuses attention on what high-growth firms such as yours most value and need. With March 2019 around the corner, this is a crucial moment in which Britain’s scaling companies must make their voice heard.

The survey should take about 15- 20 minutes to complete and can be done on a mobile or laptop. The deadline for completion is Monday 3 September 2018.

It is vital that we know from you what you think are the main barriers holding back your growth, and what you need from the private and public sectors to help you continue to scale. This will help us as we seek to improve the business environment for fast-growing companies such as yours.

Best wishes,

Briony Phillips
