The Scaleup Programme supports a select group of companies on a journey to exponential growth. The initiative will help Asset Handling scale up its world leading digital services and technology innovations.
The programme is designed to support highly innovative, ambitious, high-growth oriented companies already on their scaling journey, whose innovations or business models can disrupt an existing market, and who are establishing or already implementing their international markets strategy. High-impact engagement and early-stage outcomes can include access to finance, investment readiness or internationalisation plans.
At the centre of the service is a team of high calibre scaleup directors who operate together as a board and provide each of the companies on the programme with a matrix of skills and connectivity. The scaleup directors will help Asset Handling to structure itself for global growth and work with the company to understand the particular set of needs that it faces on its scaling journey.
Asset Handling is proud to have been accepted, following a rigorous three-stage screening process. Stephen Harrison, Managing Director says, “At a point when we are ready to introduce our products to wider markets, the input from Innovate UK with their Scaleup Programme is invaluable”.
Maxine Adam, Head of Business Growth at Innovate UK, says, ‘Our work with the Asset Handling team is a great example of just how much value this programme can add to the endeavours of the business leaders we support. The inputs are varied and blend strategic thinking with invaluable hands-on tactical guidance, to create outcomes that deliver real commercial advantage. It’s a pleasure working with the Asset Handling Directors at this pivotal time for their business.’
Speaking about the programme, she adds, ‘Admission onto the Scaleup Programme is a rigorous and highly selective process. To be eligible, selectors look for innovative, ambitious, high-growth oriented companies that are already on their scaling journey. Asset Handling is a perfect candidate in this respect and, together with EEN, we are looking forward to helping it scale up, drive growth, and realise its potential as a high-performing and world leading business’.
