What an inspiring session in Scaleup Week today on scaling with purpose! If you missed the discussion, do make sure you catch up on it. There were so many powerful insights about how to scale while maintaining your values and culture, and why having a purpose is central to successful growth.
Here are just a few of the key messages and highlights.
“Having a strong purpose for your business is a customer magnet, talent magnet and a money magnet.” Sherry Coutu, Founder of Digital Boost, F4S & Workfinder
“Scaleup businesses are there to identify problems other businesses haven’t solved and are worth solving, and then finding ways to solve those problems in a financially sustainable, commercially viable and profitable way.” Professor Colin Mayer CBE, Peter Moores Professor of Management Studies, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford
“It is easier to retain talent in a purpose led business, and there has been a change in the landscape as investors are starting to invest in more purpose driven companies.” Pip Jamieson, Founder, The Dots.
The rise of scaleups with a social purpose is inspiring. Take a look at our latest insight into social scaleups here, where you can learn more about the particular support that they need to make an even greater impact in the UK and internationally.
