A second round of the Coast to Capital Escalator programme has been launched and is now open for applications from businesses to join the programme. Application will close for the second round on Friday 22 February. In order to apply to join, businesses will need to get in contact with Lou Williams via email, lou.williams@c2cbusinesses.ogr.uk, or phone, 01403 333840 and complete the necessary application form.

In order to qualify for the programme, enterprises should have an annual turnover of between £1 million and £20 million and more than 10 employees. They must be able to demonstrate an average annual growth in employees or turnover greater than 20 per cent per annum over a three-year period. However, scaleups that do not quite fit this definition, but have strong growth potential as well as the desire to achieve scaleup growth in the short term, will also be considered. These owners will need to exhibit a “can do” attitude together with a real appetite for learning and developing.
