RAEng Scale Up Accelerator

RAEng Scale Up Accelerator
The Royal Academy of Engineering’s Scale Up Accelerator supports individuals in leadership roles in high-growth engineering and technology SMEs, providing them with the tools to successfully scale up. They accept applications from engineers and non-engineers, as long as they are in a decision-making role at their company with the capacity and drive to scale up and develop their leadership skills.

You can access and apply for the Scale Up Accelerator here.

The deadline for this round is 10 May 2021.
The programme will start late September 2021.

  • Experienced business mentor
  • One-to-one personal leadership coaching
  • Workshops, roundtables and speaker events

The 6-month accelerator is an opportunity for senior decision makers in high growth SMEs to enhance their leadership skills while continuing to work on their business.
