What does best practice look like in this domain? What needs to change in the West of England to make raising investment easier in the future? How can we foster more altruism/philanthropic behaviour from our community of successful scale-up entrepreneurs (investment/mentoring)?

* Room for Growth: November 2017 At this event we discussed the challenge of finding suitable 'grow-on' space as a scale-up business and explored aspects of affordability, availability and suitability as experienced by founders in the West of England.

* Scale up Pow Wow: November 2017 At this event we considered a few key questions: What does a good scale-up ecosystem look like? Why are scale-ups suddenly in vogue? What challenges do scale-up businesses face here? And what does the West of England Scale-up ecosystem look like? And we spent time exploring initiatives that respond to the challenges that scale-up businesses face and working out how we can support them, or create our own.
