About Scale Up 4 Growth

The aim of the Scale Up 4 Growth (S4G) programme is to accelerate growth in small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs).  The grant funding scheme is aimed at ambitious SMEs who can demonstrate ‘high growth potential’- the potential to generate growth by job creation or turnover in order to achieve their growth ambitions.

Grants of between £10,000 – £15,000 are available to support projects that will address barriers to business growth.

In order to be eligible to be considered for funding, the business must satisfy the criteria below:
1.  The business must have between 5 and 249 employees.
2. The project activity and outcomes must be based within the following regions: Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset or South Wales. 


If you meet the above criteria and would like to receive an application pack, please complete the Expression of Interest.

The deadline for submission of the S4G programme application is 12:00 (Midday) Thursday 29 February 2024.


If the business does not meet the above criteria, but if you still think the business is a good fit for the programme, please email the team at to arrange an informal discussion.
