Bootcamp for Brittelstand
SME Growth Summit is the industry event for manufacturing founders, owners and their management teams – produced to equip them with the ideas, connections and examples they need to scale up their business. The people, processes and financing that gets start-ups off the ground are not the same as those that take promising SMEs to the next level.
There is no doubt that there will be strong economic headwinds over the next two or three years and this summit will help you navigate these headwinds and emerge more efficient, sustainable and profitable than before.
Manufacturing SME leaders succeed by encountering new and better ways of working – knowing when to bootstrap their growth, and when to invest into demand.
The Manufacturer magazine has been working with UK manufacturing SMEs for 30 years – providing them with the knowledge and tools to be successful. SME Growth Summit is the perfect platform to engage with your peers with the ambition to build their businesses, with three key streams: People, Platform and Processes.
Are your people and processes ready to scale? Which financing method is right for your business? Does your reach exceed your grasp?
