Scale Up Coaching Grant Scheme announced as 2017 Business Leader Awards Event Partner

Business West

The 2017 Business Leader Awards are fast approaching and while judges are currently out viewing the contenders, the Scale Up Coaching Grant Scheme has been confirmed as this years’ event partner.

Hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine, the black-tie gala dinner event will be attended by over 700 CEOs, business leaders and VIPs, to celebrate business in the South West.

Victoria Matthews, Project Co-Ordinator for Business West said: “We are proud to announce that we are going to be the 2017 Business Leader Awards event partner. The Scale Up Coaching Grant Scheme supports businesses across the West of England to grow by contributing towards the cost of business coaching. Although business coaching can be invaluable in promoting growth, the cost can be prohibitive especially for SMEs. We want to promote success within the region and we feel the event is a great platform for us to promote this opportunity.”

The programme also offers free one-to-one business diagnostics and funding finder sessions for businesses looking to grow.

The Scale Up Coaching Grant Scheme, delivered by Business West, is part of the Enterprising West of England (EWOE) programme. EWOE is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and delivered in collaboration with YTKO, the Prince’s Trust, Bath and North East Somerset Council, North Somerset Council, Bristol City Council and South Gloucestershire Council.
