BDO launches its first Growth Programme for high-growth tech businesses

The programme, in partnership with GrowthBuilders, selects 10 of the best technology scale-ups to join a four-month intensive programme that provides the skills, tools and connections needed to maximise their growth.

Each programme, the first of which starts in April, will focus on one of three themes: tech for the future of work, innovation in RegTech, and tech transforming logistics and supply chain. 

The businesses involved will showcase their products and solutions to a curated audience of executive tech clients to help create commercial opportunities. They also benefit from extensive training around topics including sales and marketing, hiring strategies, fundraising and financial forecasting.

Tony Spillett, Head of Technology and Media at BDO LLP, said: “The UK’s reputation as a centre of talent, innovation and creativity is a huge driving force behind our thriving technology industry. However, as a nation, our whole ecosystem is geared towards start-ups not scale-ups and we need to change that.

“Our new Growth Programme aims to deliver a world-class growth service to technology scale-ups. They will receive support from senior professionals and industry experts who have experience of working with high-growth businesses to help them achieve their full potential.”

Businesses interested in joining the Growth Programme’s summer cohort must have experienced management teams and a product or service that is proven in the market. Businesses should already be experiencing high levels of growth, pulling in recurring revenue and raised – or looking to fundraise – Series A or more.
