Scale-Up Hub

Scaling companies are a key engine of growth for the UK economy, and in response the UK Government is seeking to create an environment to better support the UK’s most promising and fastest-growing firms. techUK works with its scale-up members to help inform and shape how Government approaches new regulation and policy so that we can unlock barriers to growth and build an economy that continues to lead on business productivity, investment and innovation.

Getting Policy Right for Scaling Businesses

techUK represent our industry on tech policy and regulatory changes in the UK. Our focus is on seizing the innovation and investment opportunity of scaling firms.

We convene our members and lead conversations with government and regulatory stakeholders to ensure the voice of our scale-ups are heard. As the Government seeks to create an environment to better support the UK’s most promising and fastest growing firms, techUK wants to see barriers to growth unlocked. Do this by building a coherent landscape and package that supports scale-ups to access: international and vertical markets, capital and finance, the right skills and infrastructure.
