Scaling businesses play a key role in the UK's economy. It is vital that business voices are heard and the barriers that hold back continued growth are removed. 

The ScaleUp Institute works to make the UK the best place in the world for a business to scale up and grow and their Annual Scaleup Survey provides important data and evidence to help ensure that you receive the support you need to maintain, achieve and exceed your growth aspirations.

Each year, hundreds of scaling businesses participate in this survey. The findings inform and shape the support that the private and public sectors can offer to help your business continue to scale. To date, the insights from the Annual Survey have informed: 

  • the Scaleup Visa
  • the Future Fund Breakthrough
  • reforms to unlock institutional capital
  • new Innovation and Export Strategies
  • the expansion of UK government policies such as the Regional Funds as well as agencies such as Innovate UK

There is much more that needs to be done. In this year's survey, views are wanted to understand the current barriers to your business future growth and what you believe could make a real and impactful difference.

The survey should take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete.

The closing date to complete the survey is 1 October 2023.
