InSkin Media has been chosen to be part of Growth Builder UK, a 12 month scale-up programme for high-growth businesses.
Growth Builder, the business growth programme designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, has announced the first cohort of 48 businesses selected to participate in the 12-month programme. The first of its kind to work with Government, universities, entrepreneurs and leading UK corporates, Growth Builder has been designed specifically to help established British businesses that want to take on the next stage of growth.
Companies taking part were picked based on existing proven successes and their potential for further growth by a panel of esteemed industry experts, including David Chapman at the UCL School of Management; Paola Cuneo at UKTI; and Alistair Brew at Business Growth Fund. The panel was looking for businesses with either £1.5million revenue or 20 staff and which have grown by over 20% per year or the past two years.
The cohort consists of businesses from a range of sectors including Digital & Technology (32%), Professional Services (17%), Construction (10%), Manufacturing (8%) and Wholesale & Retail trade (8%) with full time, permanent staff ranging between two and 232 (average number of FTEs is 40). On average the businesses taking part are hitting £4.5m revenue a year – and are looking to take on the next growth challenge.
The programme kicks off on 4th May when the cohort will meet for the first workshop and networking drinks.
