East Midlands Development Agency (emda), has announced that is seeking 50 potential high growth businesses from across the East Midlands to take part in its new support programme for high growth businesses, called Coaching for High Growth.
Funded by emda and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Coaching for High Growth is part of Government’s Solutions for Business portfolio, a suite of highly targeted, publicly funded products and services offering solutions to real business needs.
Coaching for High Growth provides participating businesses an intensive and bespoke package of support over a 12 month period, to help them unlock their high growth potential.
Demand for places on Coaching for High Growth is expected to be high, so businesses with ambitious growth plans for 2010 and beyond are encouraged to apply early.
To be eligible, businesses must have fewer than 250 employees, turnover between £500,000 and £40 million in their last financial year and the potential to increase sales by 20% per annum per year for the next three years.
Coaching for High Growth builds on emda’s successful High Growth East Midlands programme, which has supported nearly 170 businesses since it was launched in early 2008.
Coaching for High Growth is funded by emda and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
