  • The Scale-up Scotland leadership programme is an 18-month cohort based programme aimed at ambitious entrepreneurs and firms with the potential and desire to grow sales beyond £20-£30 million.
  • We offer a blend of experiential, business and peer to peer learning, taking entrepreneurs through the critical components of business scale-up. Whilst the central theme across the 18
    months is building leadership capability for scale; we also take a deep dive into the key drivers of scaling a business successfully.
  • Participants have the option to join focused international learning journeys during which they will visit some of the world’s leading entrepreneurs and their businesses.
  • This programme is results oriented, delivered and supported by leading entrepreneurs, expert business practitioners and facilitators. The undoubted benefits of strong peer-to-peer learning are embedded throughout.
  • Participants need to demonstrate continual development both of themselves and their organisation throughout the programme. The time commitment is 1.5 days approximately every 8 weeks.
  • We would generally expect that businesses would have reached a minimum turnover of £1m on joining the programme and be employing at least 10 people excluding the founders.
  • The programme is founded by The Hunter Foundation, and Entrepreneurial Scotland.
