Scaleup Week: the UK’s largest gathering of growth businesses

The ScaleUp Institute and investment company BGF are bringing together UK scale-up leaders to explore how to unlock business potential, access capital, and accelerate growth.

Topics for debate include untapping green investment, building inclusive workforces, the future of globalisation, and how to achieve net zero while scaling sustainably.

As employers and creators of inclusive success and regional equality, high-growth businesses are the engine of the UK economy and key to future prosperity. Faced with high inflation, global economic uncertainty, and the urgency to reach net zero, the need to support scale-ups is greater than ever.

Building long-term growth and resilience for UK business

The ambition of Scaleup Week is to connect the UK’s growing businesses with organisations and thought leaders that can support them to build resilience and plot a course to a sustainable long-term future. Together, these businesses will drive the next decade of growth and innovation.

On Thursday 22 September our Commercial Banking CEO, Paul Thwaite, will be one of six panellists sharing their insight on Scaling sustainably: how scaleups can balance a growing footprint with a growing business. Scaling a business is linked to increased greenhouse gas emissions, so how can scale-up leaders combine growth with environmental responsibility? Is it possible to grow without increasing emissions? And what models should high-growth businesses follow as they journey towards net zero?

You can register here for this event along with all the other virtual debates being live-streamed for Scaleup Week.
