Who is it for?

The Academy has been designed specifically for business owners who are running growing companies with a recommendation that they employ at least 10 members of staff, who would like to scale-up. If you employ fewer than 10 staff but are confident your key people would be able to attend the sessions we run for them, you may still wish to consider the Academy.

What will the programme cover?

With a mix of scale-up coaching and peer-to-peer mentoring for you, and relevant business expertise and inspiration for you and your senior management, the Scale-up Leader's Academy will give you a valuable insight into how successful organisations have scaled-up and engage your team along the way; allowing you to implement change immediately and transform the way you work.

Is there a cost?

To join the Scale-up Leader's Academy costs £3,000 +VAT for members of the Entrepreneurs' Forum. Membership costs £520 + VAT per year. Subject to certain criteria, you may be eligible to claim funding for up to 50% of the programme cost.

When will it be?
