Join us on our UpScaler Showcase event which will celebrate the success of the D2N2 UpScaler project and be a true celebration of business growth. Expect a keynote speech from David McDowell, COO at BrewDog. In addition to this, we’ll hear from a range of UpScaler clients about their Scale Up journey.

The D2N2 UpScaler project has been a fundamental support initiative for growing businesses in the D2N2 area for over two years now. Delivered in partnership with the East Midlands Chamber and Nottingham Trent Business School, the project has offered growing businesses a wealth of support including: guidance from a dedicated business adviser, access to a grant for coaching support, access to a graduate talent grant, peer network activity and a comprehensive events programme covering topics specifically designed to upskill the business.

This virtual event will be a celebration of growth – we’ll hear the inspiring story of BrewDog, the well-established craft beer company that has seen significant growth over recent years. We’ll also showcase the key achievements of the project and more importantly the impact that this has had on hundreds of enrolled businesses. Finally, we’ll take a look to the future of high growth business support.

Who should attend this event?

This event is open to growing SMEs in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire who want to know more about the impacts that Scale Up support can have on their business and what the support landscape looks like.

We would also like to encourage all enrolled UpScaler clients to join to find out more about the future support available to them.
