Ready for Scale

Ready for Scale will support micro and small enterprises to develop the skills to help their business take a leap forward on its growth trajectory. This 12-week online programme will follow a carefully developed methodology, informed by our Business Growth Programme, and will help smaller or earlier stage businesses to critically review themselves, assess their position, and work out what is and isn’t working.

Ready for Net Zero Growth

We will be holding a separate Online Briefing Event for this programme - details to follow shortly.

Business Growth Programme

For over 30 years Cranfield University’s Business Growth Programme (BGP) has been helping business owners achieve their growth goals. From supporting household names like Hotel Chocolat and Go Ape, to growing highly successful businesses in the B2B sectors. Given the current COVID crisis, we feel it is more important to make BGP accessible to those that need it.

To qualify, your business should be at least 3 years old, with a minimum turnover of £500,000 and a minimum of 7 employees. The programme starts on 4 February 2022 and we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships to qualifying businesses in Milton Keynes.
