BDO has launched its first Growth Programme dedicated to helping ‘high growth’ technology businesses to “scale up.”
It revealed the first cohort of 16 selected businesses will join a four-month “intensive” programme that aims to provide each business with the skills, tools and connections needed to maximise their expansion.
Each programme will focus on one of three themes: tech for the future of work, innovation in RegTech, and tech transforming logistics and supply chain.
The programme will be delivered in collaboration with GrowthBuilders who are experts in enabling scale-up and corporate collaboration to drive commercial outputs.
BDO said the participants are businesses headquartered across five countries, many of which already have an established global presence. Collectively, they have raised over £41m in funding and have more than 850 employees.
Tony Spillett, head of technology and Media at BDO LLP, said: “We have been investing in the mid-market tech sector for many years and work with some incredible success stories. Creating a programme such as this to help emerging tech businesses to scale up is a natural evolution to our growth offering.”
