Scale-Up Humber – Business Breakfast Summit
Growing a company is challenging. However, scaling a business or expanding almost without limits can be even more demanding. It calls for a suitably scalable strategy, sufficient funds, the right team and agile processes. There’s also the threat that if you expand to fast too early you can “grow broke”. So how do you overcome these challenges? What is it that the most successful businesses do that makes the winning difference?
The Scale Up Humber Breakfast Summit is intended to be a thought-provoking event to explore and debate with Humber experts and business people and also hear how people in other areas are scaling their businesses. Our Business Breakfast Summit will provide practical solutions to some of the most common challenges ambitious businesses face in scaling their business. Delegates will have the opportunity to listen to the wisdom of experienced practitioners in their field and also network with like-minded ambitious business people.
There are 2 events Hull 18th October and Barton Upon Humber 25th October.
