The Scale up Generator, run in partnership by Engine Shed and the West of England Growth Hub, provides a window into the activity, community and opportunity that exists for fast-growth, scale up companies in the West of England.
In 2014 the Scale-up Institute ran the inaugural Driving Economic Growth through Scaleup Ecosystems (DEG) programme. This prompted Business West, the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership and University of Bristol to collaborate, motivated by a shared vision put forward by Nick Sturge at Engine Shed.
In 2017 this culminated in the creation of a 12-month experiment, a role entitled ‘Scale-up Enabler for the West of England.’ Briony Phillips was appointed and spent her time focused on understanding the challenges faced by scale up companies and nudging, encouraging and cajooling the public and private sector to respond.
The Scale-up ecosystem in Bristol + Bath is rich and vibrant. Explore this map to discover support services and programmes.
