Prolific North is teaming up with Leeds Beckett University to host The Great Scale Up Summit, open to all SMEs, specifically those looking to grow and scale up their business.

Join us at The Met Hotel in Leeds on Friday 15th May, to listen to an impressive line-up of speakers.

Keynote Speaker, Adam Hildreth is the founder and CEO of Crisp and was featured in the 2017 Maserati 100 list of game-changing entrepreneurs. Together with other local high growth SME leaders, they will be sharing their story and top tips on how they successfully scaled their businesses, including pitfalls to avoid!

The summit will include a panel discussion and host one to one bookable slots for you to sit down with our partners and get expert advice on a range of services. Refreshments will also be provided.

George Lancaster, University Business Centre Coordinator said ‘We are very excited to be hosting this inaugural Scale Up Summit. With the sole purpose of providing some genuine insights into the small details that enable and enhance growth. It will be fascinating to hear the different perspectives of those in business who have successfully scaled up alongside the practical and actionable tips of our partners in professional services and Leeds Beckett Academics.’
