Growth Curve is a fully funded programme for high growth businesses based in the South East Midlands. Providing tailored, face to face support, clients receive a mix of one-to-one meetings with high growth business advisers, a university masterclass with access to the programme peer-to-peer network upon completion.
The University of Bedfordshire's masterclasses are run in partnership with SEMLEP's Growth Hub, Cranfield University and University of Northampton. They each provide a different syllabus that is tailored to the business stage and experience of the client attending to ensure maximum learning to bring back to the business. Your High Growth Business Adviser will work with you to identify the course that is right for you.
