Following a competitive process, Yorkshire-based consultancy firm thevaluecircle has been accepted into the 2022 cohort for the national business accelerator programme with multinational bank Barclays and the world-renowned Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.
Limited to a small cohort selected from a national application process, the Barclays Scale Up UK Programme addresses the core challenges businesses, founders and their senior management teams face when scaling a business by providing a bespoke, hands-on approach to help accelerate business growth.
The programme is delivered by Cambridge Judge Business School’s world-class faculty, coaches and industry practitioners with a proven track record of delivering tangible results for growth companies.
thevaluecircle’s managing partner David Cockayne commented: “Four years of hard effort by our teams have taken us to the stage where we have been recognised nationally as an accelerator business in the UK.
“The support that this programme gives us will help continually improve our client service, our market offerings and further grow the range of support we can offer.
“I am absolutely thrilled to have been selected and recognised nationally by Barclays and working with the world-renowned Judge Institute at Cambridge is the icing on the cake.”
To be accepted on to the programme, companies have to have scale-up potential, positive cashflow, and an entrepreneurial, ambitious, talented and broad-minded management team who are committed to growth.
thevaluecircle has been on a fast growth trajectory, having doubled turnover every year since it was created in 2017. The team has grown from two people in 2018 to a sizeable in-house team and a bank of more than 20 senior associates delivering expertise on client projects. Our client base has grown to include many of the NHS’s biggest trusts, spanning Cumbria to Cornwall, as well as multinationals, universities, and organisations in the financial services sector.
