Applications are now closed for the Barclays Scale Up UK Programme 2022. Please contact the programme team at [email protected] if you have any queries.

We are looking to recruit around 20 ambitious CEOs and founding teams with a commitment to achieving extraordinary results. There is a fee of £5,000 (excl. VAT) per company for Barclays clients and £13,000 (excl. VAT) for non-Barclays clients.

The ideal entry criteria are listed below, although there is some flexibility.

If your business fits the following criteria, this programme could be for you:

  • Your business has scale-up potential (e.g. annual sales ranging from startup to £20m)
  • Your business has a positive cashflow and/or is backed by a venture capitalist or angel investor
  • Your business has a founding team with a proven track record and/or an entrepreneurial, ambitious, talented and broad-minded management team who are committed to growth.

A series of six one-day workshops will take place over 12 weeks.

Selection and interviews with companies will be done on a rolling basis. Following selection, a member of the Cambridge Judge Business School team will arrange a diagnostic meeting with the companies to discuss and assess their needs.
