Britain “on track to become a scaleup nation”, says new Scale-Up Institute report
The UK is currently on track to become a ‘scaleup nation,’ according to the 2016 ScaleUp Review conducted by the ScaleUp Institute.
The 2016 survey of ScaleUp CEOs, published in full today, reflects that more than four out of five (83%) scaleup leaders expect their growth to continue despite the uncertainties created by Brexit. It also found two out of three survey respondents are already exporters; Europe and North America remain the core markets of focus for those seeking international expansion, followed by Asia.
These developments are encouraging, however, leaders still cite key barriers to growth in relation to developing leadership capacity, access to corporate buyers at home and abroad and access to the right talent and skills for their scaling businesses.
