Fast-growing companies across the region are being urged to make their voices heard in a national survey of scale-up businesses.
The ScaleUp Institute‘s 2018 Scaleup Survey – the UK’s largest survey of its fast-growing companies – is now in its fifth year and its influence and importance has grown rapidly.
This year the survey wants to hear from as many businesses as possible about their experiences of trying to grow in the modern marketplace.
And the institute says it is vital businesses across the Marches have their say to make sure the experience of the region is reflected in its annual report.
A survey spokesman said: "It is vital that we know from you what you think are the main barriers holding back your growth, and what you need from the private and public sectors to help you continue to scale.
"The survey provides crucial data and insights which inform how both the public and private sectors better support and break down barriers that face scaling businesses.
"This will help us as we seek to improve the business environment for fast-growing companies such as yours."
The survey should take about 15- 20 minutes to complete and the deadline is Monday September 3. Survey results will be published in November as a central part of the institute’s Annual Scaleup Review.
