Congrats to us! BizSmart®, has received full endorsement from the ScaleUp Institute for our role in helping UK businesses achieve 
their growth ambitions. 
The ScaleUp Institute is a private sector, not-for-profit company focused on making the UK the best place in the world to scale up a business. 
BizSmart® is one of only 10 scaleup support programmes and financiers to be newly endorsed by the Institute in 2021, a testament to the firm’s success in bringing like-minded business leaders together via peer-to-peer learning and engagement. 
In the last 5 years, we have worked with over 450 business owners who have seen an average increase in turnover of 29% and a 36% growth in profits within the first 12 months of joining our programmes. 
The endorsement will further establish BizSmart® as the support provider of choice, having helped hundreds of businesses across the Midlands to scale up, grow their profits and improve their operating practices. 
David Shoesmith, head of projects and programmes, ScaleUp Institute, said: 
“Scaleups have consistently flagged a desire to have access to local networks of peers who can act as a sounding board and share experiences and expertise with each other. 
“We are pleased to see BizSmart®’s SmartBoards having a positive impact on local Worcestershire scaleups in supporting this need and look forward to seeing others build on the learnings to enhance support in their local ecosystems.” 
Kevin Brent, founder and managing director of BizSmart®, added: “Being endorsed by the ScaleUp Institute is a huge achievement for us. We know the incredible impact our work has in helping businesses across the UK to grow and scale, but to receive recognition from the Institute confirms we are making a real difference. 
“2021 has been a crucial year in our growth as a business having launched our first franchise, and I couldn’t think of a better way to end the year than by receiving this endorsement and the great credibility that comes along with it.” 
Founded in 2012, BizSmart® is on a clear mission to help as many business owners on their scaleup journeys as possible and has supported over 700 firms.
