Two Zero Scaleup ambition

At the start of 2020 many of us found ourselves raring to seize new opportunities and do great things. What followed was a long, unprecedented year.

It’s important, however, that we look for the pearls of positivity and build on achievements in the most challenging of times to give more substance and meaning to what we do going forward.

Despite last year’s challenges it was instrumental for Lancashire’s scaleup platform Two Zero. As 2020 started, we commenced an exciting journey to empower the county’s truly ambitious fast-growing companies while bringing a greater focus nationally on everything that is amazing about Lancashire’s diverse and vibrant economy.

We launched the Two Zero brand a year ago and introduced our online platforms including website and social media channels with a purpose and identity. During 2020 we also joined forces with

The Scaleup Institute who operate nationally, promoting the scaleup theme and lobbying government on this important agenda.

We integrated ourselves within the Lancashire business support ecosystem, engaged with our target audience of scaleup companies and key stakeholders about what was needed and launched our three pilot programmes supporting Lancashire’s scaleups in partnership with our expert delivery partners.

Like any organisation we had to quickly adapt and pivot during 2020 as the effects of coronavirus were felt.. All our pilot programmes changed their delivery model to ensure business leaders received the support they needed. We also launched a new strand focusing on scaleup resurgence and we engaged with companies to amplify and share their stories.

We’re now reflecting on the progress we made last year and setting our ambitious goals for the next 12 months.

As we start 2021, Two Zero has some exciting developments and new programmes to further support Lancashire’s scaleup companies to go on and achieve even greater things. Watch this space!
