Nurturing Leaders. Growing Companies.

Shott Scale Up Accelerator: delivered by Royal Academy of Engineering

The Shott Scale up Accelerator is designed to prepare leaders in decision-maker roles to develop leadership skills and scale up their companies and an opportunity to refine strategy and enhance leadership skills while continuing to work on the business.

To qualify, you must be a decision maker in a UK-based engineering or technology business that has raised at least £1million through equity investment or turnover from the previous year, or a combination of both.

Places on the programme are gained through a competitive application process, with the best applicants awarded a place on the programme and membership of the Enterprise Hub for life.

Since the programme started in 2016, over 120 leaders of high growth SMEs have been supported. These went on to raise over £513 million of equity investment, £57 million in grants, and increase their business valuations by £480 million in total. Participants typically double staff numbers in 12 months, and credit the programme with significant improvements in their leadership mindset, strategy, and skills.

What’s included:

• A grant of up to £10,000 to pay for leadership courses of your choice

• Six months of expert business mentoring

• One-to-one personal development coaching, workshops, webinars, speaker events

• A lifetime of support and access to the Taylor Centre, the co-working and meeting space in central London
