ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Growth Curve is an intensive programme for business owners to strengthen leadership skills to help set your organisation on track for attainable long-term growth.
Set up to support businesses to scale up and grow by providing university-led masterclasses for business leaders, meetings with business advisers and funding. The programme has been updated to support businesses at this time, taking into consideration the coronavirus business environment. The masterclasses are now online and funding is still available.

Masterclasses are run in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire, Cranfield University and University of Northampton.
They each provide a different syllabus that is tailored to the business stage and experience of the client attending to ensure maximum learning to bring back to the business. Your Growth Curve Business Adviser will work with you to identify the course that is right for you.
