ISB Global joins Innovate UK Edge Scaleup Programme

  Matthew Gawn


The Innovate UK EDGE Scaleup Programme supports a select group of companies on a journey to exponential growth. The initiative will help ISB Global to scale up its world leading software technology innovations and digital services.

The Innovate UK EDGE ScaleUp Programme is designed to support highly innovative, ambitious, high-growth oriented companies already on their scaling journey, whose innovations or business models can disrupt an existing market, and who are establishing or already implementing their international markets strategy. High-impact engagement and early stage outcomes can include access to finance, investment readiness or internationalisation plans.

At the centre of the service is a team of high calibre scaleup directors who operate together as a board and provide each of the companies on the programme with a matrix of skills and connectivity. The scaleup directors will help ISB Global to structure itself for global growth and work with the company to understand the particular set of needs that it faces on its scaling journey.

ISB Global is proud to have been accepted, following a rigorous three-stage screening process. ‘This is an exceptional opportunity for ISB Global,’ says Chris Williams, Managing Director at ISB Global. ‘We are delighted to have been accepted onto the Innovate UK EDGE Scaleup Programme and we look forward to working with the team to help us achieve our innovation and growth ambitions.’

The inputs are varied and blend strategic thinking with invaluable hands-on tactical guidance, to create outcomes that deliver real commercial advantage. It’s a pleasure working with the ISB Global Directors at this pivotal time for their business.’

Speaking about the programme, they add, ‘Admission onto the Innovate UK EDGE Scaleup Programme is a rigorous and highly selective process.
